  • Fees become a monthly fixed cost

Hosting Cons

  • You must have internet to be functional
  • It can be difficult to terminate services and move data off
  • Limited control of hardware

Private cloud

The private cloud is defined as the area where cloud services are provided by a private IT infrastructure.

Public cloud

The public cloud is defined as services offered by third party providers over the public internet. They are generally priced by storage, bandwidth usage and CPU.

*It’s important to note that security can be a concern if you haven’t taken advantage of the public cloud security options that are offered.


This is when you have a combination of services. You maintain some applications onsite and some in the cloud. You can also use a combination of private and public cloud.
