Defining Public Cloud Options

What is public cloud?

Organisations today are exposed to endless technology options with more devices and more locations to work from. IT departments and service organisations are faced with the daily task of supporting productivity in the workplace, as well as solving IT problems.

The public cloud is one of the most recognisable models of cloud computing where the cloud services are provided off-site over the internet.  In a work environment, public clouds provide the greatest level of efficiency in services by making it easier to access files and collaborate on projects. Two public clouds available to businesses in Australia are the Office 365 and the Azure.

Office 365

Powered by the cloud, Office 365 uses the same applications you are already familiar with in Microsoft programs, keeps them up to date and makes them accessible from virtually anywhere. You have the freedom to edit files at your PC or Mac, email or share files from your tablet or join an online meeting from your phone.


Azure is Microsoft’s cloud application platform that enables you to build, organise and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacentres. Available in multiple datacentres around the world, Azure makes it easier for you to organise your applications close to your customers.
