Cloud computing

Cloud computing can be defined as any virtual space provided to store all our data using the internet. This space is used to store and access the data anytime. It offers us several services including servers, data storage, software, networking, etc.

It is one of the best and most popular sources to store your data and keep it safe. Multiple types of services and deployment models fall under the umbrella of cloud computing.

Cloud deployment models

A cloud deployment model is a model that has some specific configuration set up with some changes in the parameters like the accessibility and proprietorship of the deployment infrastructure and storage size. Hence, the deployment type can vary based on the person/organization managing the infrastructure and the location where the infrastructure is deployed.
