From the glossary
When cloud computing was first introduced as a potential strategy for deploying information technology infrastructure in a business enterprise, the available applications offered by service providers were often limited. Tools and features like offsite storage and virtual machines were common, of course, but high-concept ideas like containers and hybrid cloud deployments were only hard to quantify distant future possibilities.
Times have certainly changed. For many modern business enterprises, cloud computing is the foundation for all of their deployed IT infrastructure. These data-driven businesses are turning to innovations like IoT networks and serverless edge computing to meet their need for more and better data. And hybrid cloud systems are now just part of the overall IT strategy.
