Cloud computing is a broad industry term that describes a wide range of services and components. As with any other major development in technology, many vendors have started to push the terms Cloud and Cloud computing. Unfortunately, they may be using it for product and deployment options that sit outside of the generally-accepted definition. In order to understand the value of the Cloud, it’s important to first understand the types of available Cloud services. This allows organizations to choose where, when, and how they use Cloud computing.
