What is a public cloud?
A shared or public cloud usually offers the most cost-effective way to use flexible cloud resources. As the name suggests, several customers share the same infrastructure. So several so-called virtual machines can be located on a physical server. You may add or remove one or more of these virtual machines on the public cloud to or from your infrastructure, depending on your needs.
The term “public” may be slightly misleading: there is no way that third parties can access the data saved on the public cloud.
As part of PlusServer, we can also provide public cloud offerings under the product name Business Cloud.
Business Cloud – VMware vCloud
Our Business Cloud is perfect for the success of your online business model. With Business Cloud, we offer a professional, redundant cloud infrastructure based on VMware vCloud, on which you can operate new platforms efficiently and flexibly expand existing platforms.
Business Cloud offers a multitude of possibilities: It can act as an autarkic cloud, but can also be used as a “load overflow”. In combination with your existing virtual/physical environment, you will also receive a hybrid cloud. We offer this high degree of flexibility at a reasonable price and with a minimal contract term.
We offer the Business Cloud on the basis of VMware vCloud.Mehr zu VMware Hypervisor erfahren

Who needs a public cloud?
The great advantage of a public cloud is its flexibility. On the one hand, the cloud is technologically flexible and thus can be expanded quickly. On the other hand, the usage-based billing of the public cloud can bring an economic advantage. Thus, a public cloud is often used for testing and development purposes because it can be registered quickly in the developer environment and can be shut down just as quickly.
Certain environmental criteria, which are only required for a relatively short time, can only be created at short notice with the help of such a flexible cloud environment. Microservices can also be created just as well. These are either characterised by their short service life or by their low load.
Dedicated servers would be oversized in this case. At the same time, however, public cloud resources also help to cushion seasonal peak loads via a scale-out scenario. It makes no difference whether it is a pure public cloud environment or resources within a hybrid solution.
