This article will provide you more information about some cloud services and review price of them. Through this article, hope you get more understanding and choose the right service for the most convenience and efficiency.
- Hybrid cloud
A hybrid cloud is a computing environment which combines a public cloud and private cloud by allowing data and applications to be shared between them. when computing and processing demand fluctuates, hybrid cloud computing gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options.
Establishing a hybrid cloud requires the availability of: a public infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platform, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform; the construction of a private cloud either on premises or through a hosted private cloud provider and adequate wide area network (WAN) connectivity between those two environments.
A hybrid cloud offers a lot of benefits: scalability, cost efficiencies, security and flexibility. When it comes to scalability, whilst private clouds do offer a certain level of scalability depending on their configurations, public cloud services will offer scalability with fewer boundaries because resource is pulled from the larger cloud infrastructure. Therefore, by moving as many non-sensitive functions as possible to the public cloud, a hybrid cloud allows an organization to benefit from public cloud scalability while reducing the demands on a private cloud. In terms of cost efficiencies, public clouds are likely to offer more significant economies of scale and greater cost efficiencies than private clouds, so a hybrid cloud allows organizations to access these savings for as many business functions as possible while still keeping sensitive operations secure. Regarding security, the private cloud element of the hybrid cloud model not only provides the security where it is needed for sensitive operations, but can also satisfy regulatory requirements for data handling and storage where it is applicable. With respect to flexibility, the availability of both secure resource and scalable cost effective public resource can provide more opportunities to explore different operational avenues for organizations.
Using a hybrid cloud not only helps companies to scale computing resources, it also eliminates the need to make massive capital expenditure to handle short-term demand as well as when the business needs to free up local resources for more sensitive data or applications.

- Private cloud
The private cloud is a particular model of cloud computing that involves a distinct and secure cloud based environment in which only the specifies client can operate. It is also called an internal or corporate cloud, private cloud computing gives businesses many of the benefits of a public cloud – including self-service, scalability, and elasticity – with the additional control and customization available from dedicated resources over a computing infrastructure hosted on premises. Additionally, private clouds deliver a higher level of security and privacy through both company firewalls and internal hosting to ensure operations and sensitive date are not accessible to third-party providers. Some providers may offer the opportunity to employ cloud bursting, within a private cloud offering in the event of spikes in demand, which allows the provider to switch certain non-sensitive functions to a public cloud to free up more space in the private cloud for the sensate functions that require it.
Two models for cloud services can be delivered in a private cloud: infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) that lets a company use infrastructure resources such as compute, network, and storage as a service; and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that allows a company deliver everything from simple cloud-based applications to sophisticated-enabled enterprise applications.
Price: Free trial and start with the basic configuration cost according to different providers and you can expand or reduce resources depending on your specific requirements. For example: Private cloud – entry level: under $900/month, Private cloud – Single server powerhouse: $1,326/month, Private cloud – High availability: under $3,800.
- Google cloud
Google cloud is considered the easiest way to run and scale code in the cloud as compared to other clouds. There are six main features of Google cloud. The first is Google cloud has not server management, which means that you deploy your code and let Google run and scale it for you. Due to the fact that Cloud Functions abstract away all the underlying infrastructure, you can only focus on your code and build applications faster than ever before. Secondly, you will have to pay only while your code runs. It is known that Cloud Functions are ephemeral, spinning up on-demand and back down in response to events in the environment. You just need to pay only while your function is executing, metered to the nearest 100 milliseconds, and pay nothing after your function finishes. Google cloud also helps you to scale automatically. Cloud Functions automatically manages and scales underlying infrastructure with the size of workload. Additionally, Google cloud allows you to trigger your code from Google Cloud Platform, Firebase and Google Assistant, or call it directly from any web, mobile, or backend application via HTTP. Moreover, Google cloud lets you connect and extend code, rapidly move from concept to production. The last feature is Google cloud is open and familiar because there are no new languages, tools or frameworks to learn.
Google cloud help to tackle your toughest problems and grow your business.
Google cloud will follow every step of your cloud journey and decide which solutions you need, define a migration strategy and connect you with the right partners. Google cloud also scales with flexible and open technology. Furthermore, Google cloud solves problems with accessible AI and data analytics thanks to pre-trained and custom machine learning models to enhance your application and access to Clout TPUs to accelerate machine learning workloads with Tensor Flow. Last but not least, Google cloud transform your business with a full suite of cloud-based services.Price: Free trialand Google cloud give you options to fit your needs about Compute, Storage and Network so that you can efficiently run your business. In comparison with AWS: $1,102.5/month with 3-year contract as Google Cloud’s $470.64/month.
