Cloud Computing

    Defination of Cloud Computing given by NIST.    

Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This cloud model is composed of five essential characteristics, three service models, and four deployment models.

Cloud Computing Characteristics

Now Let Us See Some of the Characteristics of Cloud Computing.

On-demand self-service

    On-demand self-service seems to a very fancy stuff but it is basically Provision computing capabilities as needed automatically without requiring human interaction with service provider.

Broad Network Access

    Broad Network Access can phrased as capabilities are available over the network and accessed through standard mechanism.

Resource Pooling

    The provider’s computing resources are pooled to serve multiple consumers using multi-tenant model,with different resources dynamically assigned and reassigned according to demand.

Rapid Elasticity 

    Capabilities can be elastically provisioned and released, in some cases automatically,to scale rapidly outward and inward with demand.

Measured Service 

    Resource usage can be monitored, controlled, and reported, providing transparency for both the provider and consumer of the utilized service.
