    4 letters for Cloud Computing - OSSM On-demand, Self-serving, Scalable, Measurable

    What is the cloud computing?  How about 4 letters?  OSSM.





    I’ve been getting the scoop on cool stuff at SXSW from Silent Partner’s Kevin Francis and one of his conversations is with CloudCamp’s Dave Nielsen who has been explaining the cloud as OSSM (“awesome”)

    Cloud Computing is OSSM ("Awesome")

    Dave Nielsen of CloudCamp says the 4 essential characteristics of Cloud Computing are: On-demand (service is setup before customer asks for it), Self-service (customer decides when to turn on & off, Scalable (can handle increase and decreased usage) & Measurable (so you know how much you are using).

    What is the opposite?

    Get in line

    Wait for service

    Over provision to scale

    Trust someone else to measure when convenient for them.

    The opposite sounds like legacy IT.

    OSSM works for me.  How about you?

      You make some good points. I guess it depends on your standpoint. - If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. - Benjamin Franklin 1706 - 1790
