Public Cloud

The public cloud is a network accessible to the general public via Internet access. It allows the storage and processing of data, but also the development of various applications and technologies (AI, Machine Learning...). Public Cloud services are provided by access providers such as AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure or OVH Cloud. These Public Cloud services can be free or charged per use. The largest providers offer a wide range of services on their Public Cloud platforms, to ensure an ever richer experience for their users and an ever greater variety of products.

The Public Cloud offers several advantages: ease of use and configuration, rapid adaptation to the company's needs, pay-per-use and great flexibility according to the user's needs.

The Public Cloud is opposed to the Private Cloud, which refers to a storage network or datacenter set up and maintained directly on site by its owner.
