Other Deployment Models
Additional variations of the four base cloud deployment models can exist. Examples include:
- Virtual Private Cloud – Also known as a “dedicated cloud” or “hosted cloud,” this model results in a self-contained cloud environment hosted and managed by a public cloud provider, and made available to a cloud consumer.
- Inter-Cloud – This model is based on an architecture comprised of two or more inter-connected clouds.
