What is Cloud PLM?

Difficulty deciding how to use Cloud PLM

So what is Cloud?

The types of Cloud PLM

  • Public clouds are systems that are shared by multiple users with no control over the decision to who is their fellow users.
  • Private clouds are systems available for the sole benefit of a single company/entity where cloud data is secure and protected.
  • Community clouds where only specially selected companies with common or related goals participate in the system (like partners, channels, supply/design chain, for instance).
  • Hybrid clouds where a private cloud can extend onto a public cloud for specific activities and on an as-need basis. The benefit of a hybrid approach that incorporates a public cloud is that it provides extra performance scalability for the private cloud that would be in use.
