These services are designed to provide hassle free access to resources and applications without the need of internal infrastructure or any hardware.
Cloud services can be delivered publicly and privately. Services which are made available to a number of consumers are public cloud services and private cloud services are provided to those who maintain highly sensitive data such as healthcare or banking institutions.
