Cloud definition What is a cloud?Cloud computing is a model for enablingconvenient, on-demand network access to a sharedpool of configurable computing resources(e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, andservices) that can be rapidly provisioned and releasedwith minimal management effort or service providerinteraction. This cloud model promotes availability andis composed of five essential characteristics, threeservice models, and four deployment models. The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing
Public?The cloud infrastructure is made available to thegeneral public or a large industry group and isowned by an organization selling cloud services.
Private?The cloud infrastructure is operated solely for anorganization. It may be managed by the organizationor a third party and may exist on premise or offpremise.
Hybrid?The cloud infrastructure is a composition of twoor more clouds (private, community, or public)that remain unique entities but are boundtogether by standardized or proprietarytechnology that enables data and applicationportability (e.g., cloud bursting for load-balancing between clouds).
