2) Public cloud: When the cloud is delivered over the public network is called the public cloud. It comes free as well as with paid subscription depending upon the facilities available. As the name indicate, its services such as applications, storage, and other resources are shared by multiple customers. An example of a public cloud is Google Drive.
