15 Minutes in the Cloud: What is Cloud?

Presented by

Chip Maurer, Dell Technologies; Alex McDonald, SNIA Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative Chair

About this talk

Everyone is familiar with the term “Cloud” but it’s still worth asking “What is cloud?” The definition of Cloud has only been around for a dozen years or so. It can be defined as “networked computing facilities providing remote data storage and processing services via the internet.” While the definition is simple, the real-world of cloud is complex, and changing constantly. This first talk in the SNIA Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative “15 Minutes in the Cloud” series will present a brief history of “The Cloud.” If you are a cloud expert, these sessions might not be for you, but for everyone else, this series of short talks might clear up a lot of questions you may have. Join us for a discussion on: • Common Cloud Terminology • How all the parts work together • Why the cloud and what it’s used for • Example use cases • SNIA Educational resources on Cloud
