Cloud Models

PUBLIC. PRIVATE. HYBRID.
Which cloud is right for you?

There are many different cloud services and models with varied capabilities, so it’s important to determine which best meet your business objectives.

  • Private Cloud
  • Public Cloud
  • Hybrid Cloud
A “private” cloud is one which is owned by you and hosted in-house.
A “public” cloud is one outsourced to cloud providers.
A “hybrid” is a blend of the two, which provides varying degrees of control and cost.

Just the Right Cloud Formation.

Calyx is always predisposed to cloud solutions that best suit our client’s specific needs. We take a platform agnostic approach to technology — our allegiance is to our clients, as opposed to solutions that may be more profitable or convenient for us. Depending upon the engagement, we can be considered a public cloud provider based on the services we provide from our cloud offering. However, we’re also engaged to help clients build and manage their own private clouds, where they make the capital investments in hardware or software. We can also utilize and leverage a client’s existing assets to build a self-contained cloud either on their premise or in a data center.

Lastly, we can also provide solutions that are hybrid in nature.  Maybe they have some assets locally and they can offload some production or applications to our cloud; therefore, creating a “hybrid” style of cloud.

Consider how quickly cloud use is growing — Gartner estimates that the cloud-computing market will reach $150 billion by 2013, while Merrill Lynch places it at $160 billion by 2012.
