The Next Phase of Cloud Computing for Businesses

Lofty Goals for Cloud Computing 2.0

The potential for storing information in virtual data centers is great, especially when it comes to complementing that other much-hyped innovation: Big Data. But the cloud can also serve as an IT solution on a day-to-day level — that is, if businesses can figure out the best strategy to implement it. Until recently, that has been a struggle.

These are the three main types of cloud computing:

2.    Private: A datacenter that is protected by a company firewall.

3.    Hybrid: When a business combines internal cloud resources with an external provider.
