The Public Cloud Computing Market | Public Cloud Computing Definition


In this video we’re going to talk about the
public cloud. What is it, how does it work, and what are
some of the comparisons between the big public cloud companies, maybe some information about
the pricing and how you’re going to use all of that in your business. Good day, Dan! How are you? Good Tim! So public cloud, people don’t often think
about this is part of a business solution, obviously people focus on a private cloud
for that. What are some of the big public cloud computing
companies and how can some of those options be helpful in a specific business? So starting out at some of the larger companies,
they are the popular brands that everybody would deal with, such as Microsoft, Amazon,
Google, they are the main players when it comes to public cloud. And as I’ve said before, it doesn’t matter
whether it’s public cloud or private cloud, you need to build the right solution for your
business. So we would use different parts of Microsoft
solution, different parts of Google solution, be able to put that together for something
that a business really needs. Okay, so let’s use a specific example here. Let’s say I have my phone and I’ve got some
photos and I’ve got some videos, pictures of the cat, videos of my kids, you know talking
at school, whatever they’re doing. That’s already on a public cloud. Is that secure enough for me to use the same
kind of phone data for my business? Yeah, look, that’s a good start. But what we’d then say is that you would use
something like Microsoft Office 365 to be able to secure those pictures and be able
to secure the data, the email that’s on that phone a lot better than perhaps what you get
when it just comes as a generic phone with a generic public cloud subscription. All right, so if we go for the, for example
email, is it a good idea to use a public cloud or private cloud email or does it not matter,
how does that sort of fall out? When it comes to email, we would generally
move people into public cloud for that. So whether it’s Office 365 for email or whether
it’s Google, would be the 2 biggest players for email worldwide. Both those products are suitable for business. We tend to move people into the Microsoft
Suite mainly because that’s what people are used to. They’re used to using Microsoft Outlook, Word
and Excel and those Microsoft Suite of applications. So, we would tend to stick around Office 365
but when it comes to email and just minimal storage in the cloud whether it’s basic photos
and videos, documents, things like that, using Office 365 would be a good product. All right good. Can you give me a bit of a sense of the public
cloud computing pricing? Let’s say I’m trying to get email and maybe
some basic data storage using 365. What am I looking at sort of per month per
person, ballpark? So the pricing in public cloud is where you
get some real advantages. You can start out with just a simple inbox
with a bit of file storage and some applications for somewhere between 6 to 10 bucks per user
per month. Wow, okay, that’s pretty reasonable. If someone’s starting out in business, it
really pays to buy a public cloud subscription using Office 365 as a starting point. Okay, when would I start moving towards private
cloud versus public cloud? What sort of things would start turning that
corner? As the business starts to grow larger, you
get more staff coming in, maybe you’re getting more locations, perhaps there’s some software
that’s specific to your industry, whether you’ve got specific accounting software or
maybe what we call an ERP or line of business application. Once you then get an application like that,
that’s when you would need to look at a private cloud provider to be able to run that piece
of software. I know that the approach you guys have is
to sort of talk to each company, find out who they are and what they’re about and to
come back with a solution. You’ve mentioned a hybrid solution, can you
give me an example of a hybrid solution you’ve implement for a particular company that comes
to mind? So, a very typical hybrid solution that we
would implement would be the emails sitting in Office 365. It would be the file storage sitting in a
private cloud environment. The application of the business users will
also sit in a private cloud environment. But perhaps they’ve got files that need to
sit close to where the user sit, like close to the computer, just for fast access. So, we then typically put in a small hard
drive which has those files. So that when the users click on them they’re
very easily accessible. Because again, am I right in saying that you
can get networked hard drives now? You can get a hard drive that actually has
some network capability that doesn’t need to be connected to a specific machine or am
I talking fantasy? No, that’s true. So you can get the hard drives connected to
the network and not only can you use to save files on those hard drives connected to the
network but then those hard drives can back up into the cloud as well. So when you’re saving data to them, you can
have a peace of mind knowing that I’ve saved my data to that hard drive, it’s also being
backed up in the cloud. At the same time. If you’d like to find out more or potentially
