Fulton May Solutions manages a number of different public cloud solutions for its clients such as Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365.
The public cloud model is the most recognizable model of cloud computing to many businesses. Public cloud solutions are cloud services that are provided in a virtualized environment and is constructed using pooled shared physical resources that are accessible over a public network such as the internet.
Public cloud solutions provide services to multiple clients using the same shared infrastructure. This is in contrast to a private cloud solution which ring-fences the pool of underlying computing resources, creating a distinct cloud platform, which only a single organization has access to specific infrastructure. This is not to say that you don’t have any privacy or security in using a public cloud solution, but rather that the computing resources / infrastructure is shared among many companies.
