The Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is available both on-premise and as a cloud solution. This article will explore the two types of cloud solutions available for use of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform; Private Cloud and Public Cloud. Both of these solutions encompass the full power of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and offer a seamless deployment, the main difference is their infrastructure.

In short, the Private Cloud solution refers to hosting the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform on a VPN that is dedicated to your business, which has an isolated address space, that extends your network into the cloud in a secure manner.

The Public Cloud solution, however, refers to being able to access 3DEXPERIENCE Platform services through a public internet connection, with storage being provided by Dassault Systèmes and shared with other customers. Both of these come with their own advantages and limitations, the matter of which is better than the other ultimately depends on your business and your specific requirements.
