Community Cloud Model in Cloud Computing

Community cloud shares infrastructure between several organizations from a specific community with common concerns (security, compliance, jurisdiction, etc.), whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally. The costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a private cloud), so only some of the cost savings potential of cloud computing are realized.


Benefits of Community Cloud Model

Cost Effective-
Community cloud offers same advantage as that of private cloud at low cost.

Sharing Between Organizations-
Community cloud provides an infrastructure to share cloud resources and capabilities among several organizations.

Security-
Community cloud is comparatively more secure than the public cloud.

Disadvantages of Community Cloud Model

Data accessible between Organizations-
Since all data is housed at one location, one must be careful in storing data in community cloud because it might be accessible by others.

Challenging in Responsibilities-
It is also challenging to allocate responsibilities of governance, security and cost.
