5 Cloud Deployment Models: Which One is Best for You?

In this blog we discuss what are the 5 different types of cloud deployment models and which one is best for you

When you hear the terms "cloud," "cloud computing," or "cloud service," you probably picture managed computing resources, but that is really one type of cloud deployment. Frequently, when we refer to the cloud, we are referring to the "public cloud." In such an approach, the servers, networking, and hardware are all owned and managed by the cloud service provider. To be more cost-effective and lower upfront expenditures, we leverage cloud services to provide scalability, reliability, and resilience as well as to relieve ourselves of some of that job.

Why use different cloud deployment models?

Many businesses are interested in moving to the clouds but have substantial investments in their current data centers. Some businesses operate in highly regulated sectors and are unable to switch completely to the public cloud because of their applications or systems, which may not be optimized for the cloud. We must first comprehend all five models and establish a range of use cases in which they would be the greatest fit before we can decide which model might be appropriate for you. There is no one cloud that is the most significant, but there is a cloud solution that works best for your use case, process, and business requirements.

1. Public cloud

The best way to recognize a public cloud deployment is by the fact that you don't own any hardware or infrastructure; instead, a cloud service provider provides you with all your resources.


  • Designed to support workloads of almost any kind, big or little
  • Provisioning is simple and free of initial costs.
  • Large selection of services
  • Cost-effective, with public cloud providers offering competitive pricing   


  • Shared tenancy (ChaosDB, risk of other renters learning sensitive information)
  • Regulations governing data residency and privacy may not be met in a public cloud.
  • You must pay for practically everything you use. Your datacenter expense is more fixed than variable.

Popular public cloud service providers include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, and Google Cloud.

2.Private Cloud

In contrast to the public cloud deployment strategy, the private cloud deployment framework creates a dedicated environment for a single business or organization.


  • Less risk of disclosing critical information because tenancy is restricted to your company.
  • More control over data privacy issues and local data storage issues
  • Access is far more limited, boosting security
  • Excellent substitute for on-premises computing.


  • When restricted to the private cloud, the service offerings catalog is much more constrained.
  • Pricing has increased significantly as a result of greater starting costs for both the cloud service provider and the consumer.

3. Hybrid cloud

Public and private clouds are combined in a hybrid cloud approach. Since many businesses have made substantial investments in their own hardware and must utilize it while they migrate to the cloud, it is the second-most common strategy.


  • Make it possible to switch from on-premises to scalable cloud solutions without losing the current functioning systems.
  • Reduce the cost of cloud migration while running down the cost of your datacenter.
  • Access cloud services through your datacenter.
  • Keep your sensitive information on-site to better manage privacy concerns.


  • Infrastructure management is a difficult and complex task.
  • On-premises to cloud service migration is not necessarily a one-to-one mapping.
  • On-premises system scaling is still difficult and can limit your system's potential to grow.
  • Given the complexity of the cloud infrastructure, outages might be more difficult to identify and fix.

4.Multi Cloud

In the multi-cloud model, we utilize multiple cloud service providers simultaneously. It resembles the hybrid cloud deployment framework in which both the public and private clouds are utilized.


  • A significant amount of control over a private cloud without the full cost of maintaining your own cloud infrastructure.
  • Improve cloud architecture and resource allocation for community cloud computing workloads.


  • The public cloud still carries multi-tenant concerns, though with a smaller radius.

In recent years, the cloud has seen a tremendous evolution. At first, it was a rare choice with few options. There are several varieties available nowadays, ranging from the public to the private and everywhere in between.
