Concise Definition for Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud

Further to my post over the confusion of what people believe Public vs Private vs Hybrid cloud is, I thought I’d post what I’ve come up with as the simple and concise definition.

  • Public: Shared services or resources provided by a third party and available to many participants or tenants.
  • Private: Cloud computing resources open to just the owner.  Can be hosted on-premise or off.
  • Hybrid: Cloud computing resources spread between your own systems and a third party’s resources.

The definition could certainly be made more verbose, but I think this covers it.
