How to decide between public, private and hybrid cloud

19 June 2020 | Ignatius Wong, Director, Product Management (Hybrid Cloud & IT Solutions), CenturyLink Asia Pacific
The silver lining in IT for most enterprises today, cloud computing has developed to be a multi-purpose alternative to on-premise storage for businesses. It has caused an unprecedented shift in how digital businesses store, process, and access data from an external platform, while also empowering them to run software without installing it.
Realizing the versatile benefits of cloud computing, Australian firms have been spending hugely in public cloud services and infrastructure.
Australian expenditure in the public cloud services market increased from AU$5.4 billion in 2018 to AU$6.5 billion in 2019. 

This spending was a consequence of tremendous growth in infrastructure services as the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market saw a reported 27% increase in spending from AU$511 million in 2018 to AU$652 million in 2019.

The above study found that cloud computing is rapidly catching on among Australian enterprises because it helps them improve business agility as a whole. According to IDC, enterprises claim that providing a cloud experience across every organizational layer is key. However, many organizations still struggle with finding the right IT environment for their workloads as they are either caught up in maintaining complex legacy architecture or are stuck with expensive cloud resources that tend to spin out of control.

To gain the most out of cloud computing, businesses must be able to determine the right cloud computing deployment model for their specific workloads. A cloud deployment model is a specific configuration of the proprietorship and accessibility of the storage size, and the deployment infrastructure and the deployment types differ according to who controls the infrastructure and where it is located. Here, we will learn the fundamentals of cloud deployment models and see how the right managed cloud services provider can help you determine the right deployment model to improve business and cloud performance for your organization.
