Public cloud explained

With Public Cloud services, compute and storage resources are provided from a data centre that can be located in Australia or overseas and accessed with your choice of connectivity.

Hardware (servers and storage) is either shared among multiple users or dedicated to your use. These can be accessed on demand and you’re charged only for the resources you use.
