The ways in which the physical infrastructure of the cloud are structured depend on how the user needs to use the cloud and where. One of the most important pieces of building a cloud-strategy is to understand how to select the cloud infrastructure structure that works best for your organization.
1. Create your own data center: While creating your own data center can be costly, and not entirely necessary for smaller organizations or startups, this gives larger organizations more control over their on-premise architecture and security.
2. Services can be purchased from a public cloud vendor, and that vendor agrees to provision space within their data center for the use of just one organization.
Most providers of software outsourcing services will create a specific, clear agreement with ?their clients detailing an agreed upon approach to using the cloud within the scope of the project. If you are working with a software development company that offers cloud computing as part of their delivery model, you'll want to keep in mind a few things:
•Work with a provider that understands and supports your cloud strategy
•Find a partner to help you innovate. Working in the cloud can provide numerous benefits in this respect and your software development partner should be ready to help you excel.
•Security requirements are a huge component of a successful venture, make sure all regulations are being met and you and your partner have a contingency plan
Whichever way you choose and whichever company you decide to work with, just be sure you've created a robust strategy and understand how that will impact your business.
