Why the future of business tech is in the public cloud

Why the future of business tech is in the public cloud

Tech Republic’s Dan Patterson sat down with Agio CEO and founder Bart McDonough to discuss the public cloud vs. the private cloud.
Dan Patterson: Let’s talk about the public cloud vs. the private cloud, and not just the benefits of each, but the security components of each. First let’s define our terms. When we talk about the private cloud and the public cloud, what are we really talking about?

Bart McDonough: Yeah, so when I think of the public cloud, we’re really talking about the infrastructure, the core infrastructure, so servers and storage and networking components. So we talk about those in two different clouds. The biggest difference now between public clouds and private clouds, public clouds you usually can procure very easily. You can procure with an email address and a credit card, and a private cloud, you normally have to contract a little more directly with the organization.

Another big difference is private clouds tend to be a little bit more all bundled. You have your service organization that’s administering those servers and storage and network devices. Where in the public cloud you have a little bit more freedom to choose perhaps a different partner, a different integration partner to manage those assets.
