Cloud computing including cloud storage and services as products, solutions and services offer different functionality and enable benefits for various types of organizations, entities or individuals.

Public clouds, private clouds and hybrids leveraging public and private continue to evolve in technology, reliability, security and functionality along with the awareness around them.

IT professionals tell me they are interested in clouds however they have concerns.

Cloud concerns range from security, compliance, industry or government regulations, privacy and budgets among others with private, public or hybrid clouds. Peer, cooperative (co-op), consortium or community clouds can be a solution for those that traditional public, private, hybrid, AaaS, SaaS, PaaS or IaaS do not meet their needs.

From a technology standpoint, there should have to be much if any difference between a community cloud and a public, private or hybrid. Instead, they community clouds are more about thinking outside of the box, or outside of common cloud thinking per say. This means thinking beyond what others are talking about or doing and looking at how cloud products, services and practices can be used in different ways to meet your concerns or requirements.
