The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides adefinition:Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demandnetwork access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources(e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can berapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort orservice provider interaction. In simple words: Flexible hosted resource pools delivered on the internet
On-demand Self Service – Ready to use services; minimal intervention from provider. Broad Network Access – Access wider network services. Resource Pooling – Pool resources on demand like Compute, Memory, Storage/disk etc. Rapid Elasticity – Scale up and down, out and in with demand. Measured Service – Metered Usage & Billing – Pay as you go and only for the what is used; “Opex vs. Capex.” Multi-tenant – Usually share the platforms with others; but not always.
Public Cloud – External premises, multi-tenant, self-provisoned public service over the internet offered by vendor, available to all. Utility Computing Model. Private Cloud – Internal or external premises, single-tenant, tightly controlled access. Hybrid Cloud – Combination of the above – some resources private, others public; or public during heavy load, etc. Community Cloud – A cloud infrastructure shared by similar organizations for mutual benefit. Popular with Universities and Governments.

"Cloud Management" is a loose term that means the abstraction of infrastructure resource pools and delivery of those resources through a standardized design and operational process. To the end user this means the ability to leverage the infrastructure pool most relevant to a project or environment rather then force fitting an application or service into the infrastructure you already have (or have access to)In other words: Cloud Management means providing valueadded services on top of users existing Cloud services, andempowering users to do more than is possible from a single Cloud vendor.
Todays IT environment – Legacy processes and policies to tools and management that are not cloud enabled yet? Multi-Clouds – Too Many clouds, each one follows different architecture? API’s differ (Different formats, resources, encodings), Abstractions and features differ, (Network, Storage, hypervisors) . Too Many tools – Too many management tools doing the same (or) different things for different clouds and trying to solve the same problem “Managing the cloud”? Orchestration of Services – The main challenge is to cobble the best of breed services into one unified solution. Management Consoles – Most clouds are a set of APIs and/or a simple UI to launch servers . These are basic building blocks, not a management system. Not very business friendly, needs technical knowledge.
Automation – Legacy processes and policies to tools and management that are not cloud enabled yet? Cloud Ready Solutions – Too many management tools doing the same (or) different things for different clouds and trying to solve the same problem “Managing the cloud”? Governance and Control – Monitoring, User Management, Accountability and Billing Portability – So, why just run everything in one data center.
Allows users to provision, manage and control various public clouds and private cloud platforms Helps manage users, security, financial controls, configuration management and automation across cloud infrastructures Manages ‘Backup’ and ‘Recovery’ . Deploys applications with automated scaling, recovery, both within one cloud as well as bursting across clouds. Protects from single cloud vendor lock-in to allow cross-cloud operations and migration. Facilitates Disaster recovery configuration and management (sometimes). Manages your service level requirements. Executive dashboard showing end user service levels along side cloud resource utilization efficiency. Tracks, audits and reports for compliance.
Provision instances, when needed, stop them when not required Provision storage General network management – configure ports etc. Build base Images Backup and Restore data Backup/Restore the database Configure Load Balancers and Manage them Auto-Scale or manually add worker nodes when necessary Monitor Instance’s health and act on it. Cost Management – Watch your meter and bill. Configure Security of instances Configure and manage the VPN connection between the cloud and your corporate network Schedule many of the above tasks Create automation scripts Configure and manage Applications
