Classifying Public Cloud Services

Classifications of Public Cloud Services – A Complete Guide

There is an ample variety of services that are delivered by the cloud on the demand of the companies and the customers. 

These services, as told earlier, benefit a lot by: 
Reducing the IT costs 

When you move on to the cloud from your old database, you find it pocket-friendly. It is only possible in cloud services because using their resources helps you save the money that was previously used to purchase those expensive systems and equipments. 


Managing your system storage and operations was previously considered manual tasks because you need to manage them all by yourself.  

Cloud handles all your extra works, making you free for your main task. This saves both- your time and energy and frees you up from a hectic, unhealthy schedule. 

Business Continuity 

Business continuity simply means to make your business eligible to withstand every situation, whether a natural calamity, power failure, or any other crisis.  

The process includes planning for the protection of data and systems. Data is the backbone of your business, so it is important to store it in a secure place.   

Cloud was made for the same purpose. It ensures that your data is backed up and kept in a safe location. After any crisis, it allows you to access your data again quickly, and your business will be back at the same level again, with zero loss.  

Types of Cloud Computing - Advantages and Disadvantages!
Collaboration Efficiency 

Collaborating with the cloud gives you more freedom to share and communicate. You can give easy access to the employees with different locations through cloud computing.   

The flexibility of work practices 

Being a cloud user, you experience smooth working, no matter you’re at your office or home. You can flexibly access the data anywhere at any time.   

Public Cloud Services 

Cloud services are divided into 4 types which are- 

  • Public Cloud 
  • Private Cloud 
  • Hybrid Cloud 
  • Multi-cloud 

Among all the four cloud services, Public Cloud is considered the simplest. It makes computing resources available to anyone for purchase. It may also be used for less-sensitive applications with unpredictable spikes in usage or storing data because it does not require frequent access.

Platform as a service 

It provides a cloud environment to develop, manage and deliver applications. PAAS provides tools to manage security, operating systems, server software, and backups.  

Software as a service 

SAAS provides access to a vendor’s cloud-based software. Users get software and applications via a subscription model. All the work becomes easy to manage with SAAS as it manages, installs, or upgrades the software on its own.
