Cloud Services

Businesses and organizations who want to migrate their existing IT infrastructure from an on-site model to cloud servers need the proper guidance and support from cloud consulting services. The cloud is an attractive computing architecture thanks to its scalability and security which enhances the operation efficiency of organizations while reducing costs.

Only qualified and experienced experts fully understand the complexity of cloud computing and migration to cloud servers and are therefore the most qualified people who can ensure success.

More businesses are switching to cloud platforms to benefit from the scalability, flexibility, and cost-efficiency it holds. In this context, businesses must recognize the fact that the different models for cloud deployment are different and there’s no one size fits all in cloud computing. Consultants can help them choose one that addresses their issues and needs the best.

Cloud Deployment Models by Service Types

According to the service type, there are three primary cloud deployment models which along with use cases and advantages are as follows:


In the SaaS (Software as a Service) service model of cloud computing, third-party hosts store software apps and lets customers access the same online through browsers or specific web apps. This provider looks after various aspects of hosting and availability like:


Adequate computing infrastructure

App maintenance

Salesforce, MS Office 365 and Google Workspace are all examples of SaaS apps.

With the SaaS could service types of businesses can use powerful app functionality without having to invest in high-powered specialized hardware and other types of computing infrastructure while enjoying high levels of scalability.


In the PaaS (Platform as a Service) cloud service model developers can use a platform for the creation, testing and deployment of apps. Different aspects of computing platform like OS, infrastructure and middleware are provided and maintained by the service provider and users can concentrate their efforts on app development and deployment. Google App Engine, Heroku and the AWS’s Elastic Beanstalk service are leading examples of PaaS services.

PaaS facilitates the work of development businesses in their core area of expertise while reducing time to market and enhancing organizational agility. Scalability is another great asset for PaaS cloud services. The swift and efficient development that PaaS services facilitate the operations of businesses with multiple development teams.


The Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud service model gives users access to virtualized computing resources like storage, networking capabilities and even entire servers. The service provider simply provides the cloud server infrastructure while users maintain full control of different aspects of the computing power and platform like OS, apps, and data. Microsoft Azure, AWS EC2 and the Google Compute Engine are some of the most popular IaaS and best cloud storage services out there.

The greatest asset of IaaS services is the control over the computing resources it provides its users, with it, businesses can customize and optimize operations environments according to their specific needs. IaaS too offers great scalability for businesses looking for Cloud services. If you are an enterprise level business and need complex IT solutions or need strict compliance to regulations or have specialized workloads, then IaaS services are well suited for your use.


Desktop as a Service or simply DaaS is a form of cloud computation where users can access virtual desktops running its own set of apps that anyone can access online irrespective of physical location.

Types of Cloud Deployment Models

There are three essential types of cloud computing models in terms of the deployment model or method which are as follows:

Public Cloud

In the public cloud service deployment model, the third-party computing infrastructure and resources are available online accessible by the public and hence its name. The service provider is responsible for security, maintenance, and the necessary infrastructure for providing such services. Examples of public cloud services include MS Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud.

Public cloud systems are characterized by their great scalability and flexibility while remaining a cost-effective solution with firms paying only for the number of resources they actually use. The public accessibility also facilitates collaboration thereby being suitable for post-COVID 19 remote, distributed and online working methodologies. It is especially suited for businesses experiencing rapidly growing workloads.

Private Cloud

In this deployment model the cloud is private with businesses exerting full control over critical computational specifics like infrastructure, maintenance, security. They are in control over whether they are hosting the cloud on third-party data centers or on-premises. Governments and large corporations usually prefer private clouds to carry out their tasks.

The greatest advantage of private cloud is the complete control over the various aspects of computing infrastructure they offer. This allows businesses to customize and optimize the cloud they use. The enhanced security and conformity with compliance regulations is another advantage of the model. Additionally, in the long-term private clouds are often more cost-effective than their public counterparts. If you are business with a specialized workload demanding custom infrastructure like healthcare, financial and governmental organizations, then you may prefer to use private clouds.

Hybrid Clouds

The hybrid cloud computing model, as the name suggests, combines the best of the worlds of public and private clouds.

The result is a single, unified cloud computing infrastructure where business enjoy the scalability and low initial costs while maintaining strict security and enforcing high levels of compliance with regulations. This translates to greater flexibility for business organizations and businesses can switch between private and public cloud workloads according to the sensitivity of the workload. Businesses

where the workloads can vary like ecommerce and retail sectors will find the hybrid model to be exceptionally effective.
