Lots Of Clouds Out There

The services from these “Clouds” are vast and growing:

Private Clouds – owned, deployed and managed by the user.

Managed Clouds – owned by the customer but managed by a 3rd party

hosting service such as Amazon and Secure Clouds such as Firehost hosting service such as Amazon and Secure Clouds such as Firehost.

Public Clouds – offered as Infrastructure-as-a-Service or Platform-as-a-Service, or Software-as-a-Service such as DropBox or Skydrive.
