  • Public cloudPublic cloud describes cloud computing in the traditional mainstream sense, whereby resources are dynamically provisioned to the general public on a fine-grained, self-service basis over the Internet, via web applications/web services, from an off-site third-party provider who bills on a fine-grained utility computing basis.[13][edit]Community cloudCommunity cloud shares infrastructure between several organizations from a specific community with common concerns (security, compliance, jurisdiction, etc.), whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally. The costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a private cloud), so only some of the benefits of cloud computing are realised.[43][edit]Hybrid cloudHybrid cloud is a composition of two or more clouds (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together, offering the benefits of multiple deployment models.[43][edit]Private cloudPrivate cloud is infrastructure operated solely for a single organization, whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally.[43]They have attracted criticism because users "still have to buy, build, and manage them" and thus do not benefit from lower up-front capital costs and less hands-on management,[44]essentially "[lacking] the economic model that makes cloud computing such an intriguing concept".[45][46]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing#Community_cloud
