The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines “the cloud” as:
“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.”
So in a practical sense, the cloud simply represents a collection of servers and networks spread out geographically that work together to provide you with reliable and flexible services.
There are three types of clouds:
1. Public Cloud – Infrastructure and services that are completely open to anyone on the internet
2. Private Cloud – Infrastructure and services that are used for private or limited access
3. Hybrid Cloud – A mixture of both public and private cloud infrastructure and services.
