Cloud Deployment Models

CCSP Study Session 26 Aug 2020

In today’s video we will be reviewing the four cloud deployment models.

Cloud deployment models describe how the cloud service is structured on the most basic level. There are four cloud deployment models: public, private, community, and hybrid.

A private cloud is the most traditional cloud deployment model. All aspects of the cloud are controlled by the organization, no components external to the organization are used.

A public cloud deployment is entirely controlled by the Cloud Service Provider (CSP). The CSP offers services to a wide number of customers often using the same hardware to service many customers at once.

A community cloud works by sharing resources amongst a group. This cloud deployment model is resilient because the loss of one node will not bring down the entire cloud.

A hybrid cloud combines two or more cloud deployment models. Hybrid cloud deployments combine the functionality of each deployment model but also introduce vulnerabilities from each.

In today’s situation, cloud computing is more important than ever. More companies are employing remote workforces, prompting the need for robust cloud security solutions.

The industry’s leading cloud security certification is the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP). This certification shows industry leaders that you possess the knowledge and expertise to thrive in a cloud environment.
