What Do Cloud Providers Do?

Cloud is just a term that has become popular and to date has no universally accepted definition. Although various cloud computing providers have tried to argue that the term “Cloud computing” only refers to their services and does not in any way include anything else, to date no single definition has emerged.
If you type Cloud Computing into Google there are understandably a range of definitions offered which suggest a theme:

  • Google define Cloud Computing as:

    the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer

    They clearly draw their definition of cloud computing from the Oxford Dictionary

  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (a body of the US Department of Commerce) produced a document called The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing in which they define Cloud Computing as:

    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.

    (page 6, paragraph 1)

Our Definition of Cloud

Typically, we consider Cloud to encompass technology related services that are made available over the Internet. This will normally mean that a user could access their Cloud services on almost any device anywhere in the world. These services are most often offered with monthly pricing and calendar month contracts.
