  2. Private Cloud:
    Private cloud allows systems and services to be accessible within an organisation.It offers accrued security attributable to its personal nature.
  3. Community Cloud:
    Community cloud allows system and services to be accessible by group of organisation.
  4. Hybrid Cloud:
    Hybrid cloud is a mixture of private and public cloud. However, the critical activities are performed using private cloud while non critical activities are performed using public cloud.
