Types of clouds
There are many types of Clouds in the Cloud Computing era. One main distinction is among public, private and hybrid clouds. Public clouds feature multiple tenants while private clouds feature only one tenant. Hybrid clouds are combinations of both public and private clouds into one. Cloud orchestration software in coordination with Software Defined Infrastructure components are what make Cloud Computing more agile and scalable than traditional data centers.
