Here are some short definitions to get you started:
A common model where all the underlying computing resources (servers and hardware), connectivity, security, and software licensing are provided by the vendor.
The vendor’s resources are pooled and shared between multiple client businesses. Think AWS or Microsoft Azure.
Similar to the public cloud in that the vendor is providing all of the resources; however, those resources are all dedicated specifically to your Omaha business.
If the public cloud is provided by an outside vendor, then it can also be called IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service).
You can also create and own your public cloud if you have a data center or colocation facility.
In some cases, it makes more sense for you to continue to own your server equipment. However, you do not want to build out a hardened data center environment within your facility.
Colocation services allow you to place your equipment in a dedicated data center facility that is physically secure and has all of the expected redundancies — typically power and connectivity.
Most businesses use a hybrid scenario, which is a mix of public and private clouds as well as different cloud services such as MS Office 365, Salesforce.com, or Quickbooks online.
Options abound when you choose to go with a hosted business phone system, whether you are a small local business looking for a monthly operational phone expenditure for 20 users or a midsize company wanting to colocate your phone system equipment at a data center.
Streamline your business communications with a hosted VoIP phone system — a convenient, cost-effective system that integrates unified communication solutions. Hosted VoIP solutions offer a great amount of flexibility to scale up or down depending on the number of users and features your business needs.
