Public cloud

The public cloud service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available via the Internet. These applications and associated data reside inside the service provider's data center (managed by that provider). This gives users secure access to resources from anywhere.

Private cloud

Private cloud is the cloud infrastructure operated internally for a singular organization. It can be managed by the organization or a third party, and can exist on-prem or in geographically distributed data centers.

Hybrid cloud

A hybrid cloud is composed of two or more clouds, private or public, that remain unique entities but are bound together by standardized technology that enables data and application portability.
