Private Cloud vs. Public Cloud vs. Hybrid Cloud

Reasons that drive users to the Cloud

Reasons that drive users to the cloud

Private or public, with Stratosphere Networks cloud services, there is no hardware required. Our cloud solutions are specifically tailored to meet the specific needs of each company. While both are secure and easily scalable, there are several differences.


Private cloud is an infrastructure that is managed internally or through a single organization, such as a service provider. Only users of the organization can access data, applications, and backup through the private cloud. A private cloud is, therefore, more expensive than public. It may be more desirable for larger enterprises that would like to work seamlessly between offices, as they can easily share information and resources without security risks.

If you need dedicated infrastructure for a private cloud, some of our data center suppliers offer customized server configurations. Please visit our Data Center and Colocation page for more information.


The public cloud is open to any user with a credit card. Anyone can access the public cloud to store data. It's a cheap, quick and easy to use hosting infrastructure, but performance may be unpredictable at times. The public cloud also carries security and resource availability risks. It is up to companies if they prefer the cheap, quick and easy to use public cloud hosting infrastructure or if they want to own a more secure, private cloud specific for their own uses.

Our senior technology advisors have experience working with the following major public cloud providers:

The hybrid is a combination of the public and private cloud. It is a customizable solution and gives businesses the ability to take advantage of the benefits of both private and public. Typically, more critical business applications or servers reside in a private cloud, with less critical ones residing in a public cloud. The hybrid cloud is often a more cost-effective and flexible solution, although not for everyone.

While there are pros and cons for each type of cloud, Stratosphere Networks provides them all. The Stratosphere team will consult with your company to find the best solution that fits your needs.
