Essential Characteristics of Cloud Computing – Part 1

Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, ubiquitous, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources like networks, servers, storage, applications, services etc. that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This cloud computing model is composed of some essential characteristics, let’s look at them.

On-demand self-service


Without requiring human interaction with each service provider, a consumer can unilaterally provision computing capabilities, such as server time and network storage, as needed automatically.

Broad network access

Capabilities, available over the network, can be accessed through standard mechanisms that promote use by heterogeneous thin or thick client platforms, for instance, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and workstations.

Rapid elasticity

Capabilities can be elastically provisioned and released either automatically or manually to scale rapidly outward and inward commensurate with demand. The capabilities available for provisioning often appear to be unlimited to the consumer and can be appropriated in any quantity at any time.
