As defined by the National Institute of Standards And Technology (NIST), the four deployment models for cloud computing include:
- Private cloud
- Community cloud
- Public cloud
- Hybrid cloud
The concept of moving your data offsite to the internet appears to some a scary proposition. However upon closer inspection, the benefits that cloud computing offers, through the use of virtual servers are becoming very appealing to a growing number of businesses, large and small. The scalable architecture of cloud computing allows your IT costs to stay in line with your business growth by allowing you to pay for what you use. Offsite redundancy is built in, while standard application licensing costs are reduced because this responsibility is shifted to the provider, which intern you pay a fraction for as part of your 'pay-as-you-go' or subscription-based fee. Core application licensing costs adhere to a set of different licensing models available in the cloud, along with the option in some cases of moving existing on-premises licensing to the cloud.
