In a private cloud, the customers, who are also called tenants, can be different business divisions inside the same company. In a public cloud, the customers are often entirely different organizations. Most public cloud providers use the multi-tenancy model. It allows them to run one server instance, which is less expensive and makes it easier to deploy updates to a large number of customers.
