Public cloud vs private cloud

Public clouds are the most common way of deploying cloud computing. The cloud resources (like servers and storage) are owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider and delivered over the Internet. A private cloud, on the other hand, consists of computing resources used exclusively by one business or organisation. The private cloud can be physically located at your organisation’s on-site data center or it can be hosted by a third-party service provider. But in a private cloud, the services and infrastructure are always maintained on a private network and the hardware and software are dedicated solely to your organisation.
