IT Terminology

Public Cloud

A public cloud refers to a cloud computing model in which cloud services, such as computing resources, storage, and applications, are delivered over the internet by a third-party cloud service provider to multiple organizations or individuals.

These services are hosted and operated in data centers that are shared across multiple customers, providing on-demand access to scalable and cost-effective computing resources. Public cloud services are typically offered on a pay-as-you-go or subscription basis, allowing users to access resources as needed without investing in on-premises infrastructure.

Public cloud providers deliver a range of services, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS). Users can leverage public clouds for deploying applications, storing data, hosting websites, running virtual servers, and accessing a variety of software tools and development platforms.

Public clouds offer benefits such as scalability, cost-efficiency, and reduced maintenance overhead, making them popular choices for businesses and individuals looking to leverage cloud resources for their computing needs. Security, compliance, and performance considerations are also important factors to consider when utilizing public cloud services.
