infrastructure is a public cloud. A public cloud is designed for the general public, much like Google Drive and is also used to sell cloud services. The last one is a hybrid cloud; this infrastructure is designed around two or more clouds bound together through either a standardized or proprietary means and enables data and application portability. An example of this would be cloud bursting for load balancing between clouds during peak times or seasons.

CLOUD PLANNING 5 This is highly beneficial for any organization that is looking to save money when their resource demand is usually not very high. Once an organization has decided upon their needs and what type of cloud infrastructure suites them most they need to consider the factor of scalability and growth. Cloud systems are well known for their consolidated services through virtualization; however, there will come a time when what is currently in place will need to expand. A plan will need to be drafted up to cover the terms on how to reduce costs, migrate data and systems as well as documentation on how the company will benefit from this expansion.

The last part of a policy is determining responsibility, accountability and roles for the cloud design and personnel managing it.
