A definitive definition of what is cloud computing July 24, 2012

Posted by vbry21 in General Stuff.

I teach all about clouds, and I have the VMware definition and the Microsoft definition burned into my mind; however both companies differ in what they say a cloud is and what a cloud does, so I decided to get a definitive answer.

The best place to get an accurate answer is from a standards body and that is what I have done.

I decided to go with the National Institute of Standards and Technology

Happily I found they had published a document that explains a cloud definition, service models and types.

Very handy and it’s very academic.
