Cloud Defined

Despite the hype, “cloud” may be the most overused and commonly misunderstood term in the tech industry today. Let’s demystify it a little before determining how best to leverage it within your organization.


In short, cloud service is elastic (users consume as much or as little of a service as they want at any time), sold-on-demand, and fully managed by the provider. More importantly, cloud computing makes it possible to increase capacity and add capabilities on-demand–without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel or licensing new software.

One of the challenges with the definition above — and this isn’t Latisys’ definition…it’s really a definition established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) — is that it’s broad enough that one can apply the term “cloud” to a variety of service delivery models.
