The three main cloud hosting options are Private Cloud, Public Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud.
Before we go into the differences and advantages of these three options, let’s quickly answer the question, “What’s the difference between a cloud hosting option and a cloud-based IT solution?”
A cloud hosting option is the “house” or “property” where the cloud-based IT solution that you’re using (like Microsoft Office 365, your website, your applications, or your data storage) lives. Some companies have chosen to do everything within the cloud. This hosting scenario gives them the flexibility of doing their work from anywhere, on any device, through a browser interface.
