A public cloud uses a common system, standardized security and the Internet to provide a service to a company or individual. Examples of public cloud offerings include gmail, SalesForce.com, and the Amazon Cloud. Public cloud solutions can provide a cost-effective way to solve a business problem. The trade-off is the inability to customize the public cloud offer, the need for additional logins and passwords, and surprise expenses as the number of users and the need for resources grow.
As part of our consulting services, we help clients identify public cloud solutions that should be on their horizon.
