Public Cloud

Public cloud is a term used to describe the common cloud computing model whereby a service provider makes resources like software or data storage available over the internet. While the public cloud is big business and attracts the world’s largest providers, like Amazon Web Services and IBM, access to the public cloud itself is often inexpensive or free to establish and users are often, but not always, smaller scale enterprises or individuals. The public cloud is sometimes regarded as less secure than private clouds.
