Customers can provision IT capabilities such as user access, server time and network storage as needed.
Broad Network Access
IT capabilities are available over the network and accessed through standard mechanisms that promote the use of any end point device.
The cloud provider’s infrastructure resources can be pooled to serve multiple customers (multi-tenanting), with different physical or virtual resources assigned according to demand.
IT capabilities can be rapidly provisioned to scale out quickly and released to scale in just as fast. This means you can purchase and provision resources in any quantity in a short timeframe.
Cloud systems and resources are measured so that they can be monitored, controlled and reported on, providing transparency for customers.
