A Guide for Understanding Cloud Computing

BlueCoat: This white paper from Blue Coat attempts to do the following:

  • “Describe a set of characteristics that are typically associated with a cloud
    computing solution.
  • “Define what is currently meant by private, public and hybrid cloud computing
    solutions and describe how those definitions are likely to change over time.
  • “Identify the potential cost savings and other benefits that are associated with
    cloud computing.
  • “Describe the three primary classes of public cloud computing: Software-as-a-
    Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service.
  • “Provide multiple examples of each class of public cloud computing, along with
    representative pricing and service level agreements.”

It also explains how BlueCoat products and services can contribute to a cloud computing environment.
