Technology Strategies to Ensure Benefits and Mitigate Risk Options to Discuss with your Life Science Cloud Vendor Cloud computing is defined to have several deployment models, each of which provides distinct trade-offs which are migrating applications to a cloud environment. NIST defines the cloud deployment models as follows: Private cloud: The cloud infrastructure is operated solely for an organization. It may be managed by the organization or a third party and may exist on premise or off premise. Community cloud: The cloud infrastructure is shared by several organizations and supports a specific community that has shared concerns (e.g. mission, security requirements, policy, and compliance considerations). It may be managed by the organizations or a third party and may exist on premise or off premise. Public cloud: The cloud infrastructure is made available to the general public or a large industry group and is owned by an organization selling cloud services. Hybrid cloud: The cloud infrastructure is a composition of two or more clouds (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability (e g , cloud bursting for load-balancing between clouds). Choosing the correct deployment can depend on who needs to access the service, budget and security concerns. Private clouds are the most secure and most expensive. Private clouds allow companies to have isolated sections of a cloud where you can launch resources in a virtual network. You can have complete control over your virtual networking environment and place your backend systems, such as databases or application servers with no Internet access. You can limit...
