Public Cloud VS Private Cloud Public clouds:• Also known as a shared cloud, such services are provided "as a service" over the Internet with little or no control over the underlying technology infrastructure. This cloud is appealing to many decision-makers as it reduces complexity and long lead times in testing and deploying new products. It is generally cheaper, too. Private clouds:• Also called an internal cloud or enterprise cloud, this also offers activities and functions "as a service" but is deployed over a company intranet or hosted datacenter. This is private product for a company or organization offering advanced security and highly available or fault tolerant solutions not possible in a public cloud. In this scenario, the private cloud owner shares few, if any, resources with other organizations. Hence, multi-tenancy is not an issue.• http://www.paypercloud.com/Public-versus-Private-Cloud-Hosting-Comparison.aspx
