It can be confusing for businesses to determine where best to have their applications, hardware and systems to reside.
- Do you put them in the cloud?
- If so, then Private, Public, or Hybrid?
- Do I have the right internal resources to support these environments?
- If not, then who will manage those environments for me?
- If my systems do go down, how does that affect my business?

Not all companies need to go to the cloud. Sometime it is best that you are just in a neutral data center that allows you to have your application, hardware and systems in a secure and harden facility that s offsite from your business.
BACKUP & RECOVERY
The purpose of the backup is to create a copy of data that can be recovered in the event of a primary data failure. Primary data failures can be the result of hardware or software failure, data corruption, or a human-caused event, such as a malicious attack (virus or malware), or accidental deletion of data. Backup copies allow data to be restored from an earlier point in time to help the business recover from an unplanned event.
Public clouds are owned and operated by service providers. Customers benefit from economies of scale because infrastructure costs are spread across all users, thus allowing each individual client to operate on a low-cost, “pay-as-you-go” model. Public cloud infrastructures are typically larger in scale than an in-house enterprise cloud, which provides clients with seamless, on-demand scalability.
Private clouds are those that are built exclusively for an individual enterprise. They allow the firm to host applications in the cloud, while addressing concerns regarding data security and control, which is often lacking in a public cloud environment. There are two variations of private clouds, On-Premise, which is hosted within a company’s data center, or External, which is hosted by cloud computing provider.
Hybrid clouds combine the advantages of public and private cloud where a company can leverage third-party cloud providers in either a full or partial manner. A hybrid cloud environment is also capable of providing on-demand, externally-provisioned scalability. Augmenting a traditional private cloud with the resources of a public cloud can be used to manage any unexpected surges in workload.
