Forrester: 70% of “private clouds” aren’t really clouds at all – Network World

Question as to whether a private cloud is really a cloud,,,  Does IT’s implementation meet the NIST definition?  If it doesn’t, does that really matter if IT is meeting the business’ needs?  Or do business users expect a cloud to be truly on-demand, self-service and elastic?

From the article….”

Most cloud experts have settled on a generally-agreed upon definition of cloud computing – be it public or private – as having the five characteristics outlined by the National Institutes for Standards in Technology. These include:

  • On-demand, self-service for users
  • Broad network access
  • Shared resource pool
  • Ability to elastically scale resources
  • Having measured service
