Cloud computing characteristics

The 5 major cloud computing characteristics are:

  1. On-demand self service
  2. Broad network access
  3. Resource pooling and multi-tenancy
  4. Rapid elasticity and scalability
  5. Measured service

1. On-demand self service

The cloud computing services does not require any human administrators, user themselves are able to provision, monitor and manage computing resources as needed.


2. Broad network access

The cloud computing services are generally provided over standard networks and heterogeneous devices.


3. Resource pooling and multi-tenancy

The cloud computing services should have IT resources that are able to scale out and in quickly and on as needed basis. Whenever the user require services it is provided to him and it is scale out as soon as its requirement gets over.


4. Rapid elasticity and scalability

The cloud computing services should have IT resources that are able to scale out and in quickly and on as needed basis. Whenever the user require services it is provided to him and it is scale out as soon as its requirement gets over.


5. Measured service

The resource utilization is tracked for each application and occupant, it will provide both the user and the resource provider with an account of what has been used. This is done for various reasons like monitoring billing and effective use of resource.
