In the public cloud, apps and data run on the same shared public pool of resources – available to anyone with the swipe of a credit card. This type of environment is well-suited for certain applications such as test & development, mobility & social media, as well as some email, file sharing & collaboration systems.
But when security and compliance matters, when workloads and applications are mission-critical, or when hands-on expertise is needed to tailor, migrate and optimize your environment – a private cloud solution is best.
Public cloud IaaS is cheaper than private, but you get what you pay for. Your workloads, applications and data may sit on the same server or network as a hacker from China or a spammer from Russia. You also have no visibility into the hardware your environment is running on or control over the Quality of Service (QoS) you receive. Leading private Cloud providers build their platform using brand name servers, blades, firewalls, and load balancers that are built for multi-tenancy and provide greater security and isolation. They also create separate resource pools so customers can choose the performance level best suited to their application. With the public cloud it’s truly “one size fits all”.
Multi-tenant isolation. Role-based permissions. Network segmentation. Intrusion detection. With the Latisys Cloud, your Enterprise can take advantage of multiple layers of data protection and the higher levels of security necessary to meet your stringent compliance requirements and specific SLAs.
