Executive Summary

Cloud Computing is not a specific technology, but a model of computing. The term "Cloud" refers to both the applications delivered as services over the Internet and the hardware and system software in the datacenters that provide said services. When a cloud is offered as an on-demand service, it is considered a Public Cloud. On the other hand, a Private Cloud refers to internal datacenters, not open to the public, that are deployed within an organization's firewall. Private Clouds are sometimes referred to as "on-premise" Clouds, as they are hosted within the organization instead of with a third party vendor. Hybrid Clouds fuse both models together.
