What is Cloud Deployment?

Cloud deployment is the process of building a virtual computing environment. It typically involves the setup of one of the following platforms:

  • SaaS (Software as a Service)
  • PaaS (Platform as a Service)
  • IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)

Deploying to the cloud provides organizations with flexible and scalable virtual computing resources.

A cloud deployment model is the type of architecture a cloud system is implemented on. These models differ in terms of management, ownership, access control, and security protocols.

The five most popular cloud deployment models are public, private, virtual private (VPC), hybrid, and community cloud.
