The public cloud is the original idea of cloud computing. The cloud computing provider offers computing power, which can be accessed by many customers at the same time. These resources are shared by their respective needs. Each customer uses the amount of virtualized resources they need to run their applications.
Advantages of the Public Cloud
The special advantage of using a public cloud is that the resources are scalable at any time. As a result, it is possible to measure the resources provided according to the current requirements. There can be neither an under-supply nor an over-supply of resources. The public cloud user saves the investment for a dedicated data center. CAPEX becomes OPEX and investments are changing to operating costs and therefore protect the liquidity. Clever management of the public cloud saves costs for ongoing operations.
At the same time, the customer can build on greater flexibility, as the public cloud is designed for rapid scaling, even on a large scale. This also reduces the time and effort for the provision of IT applications. The learning curve of a professional operator of a public cloud is also more advantageous when it comes to securing the IT operation or service levels on a permanent basis.
