It’s cloud, nothing more and nothing less

Public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud – let’s stop the nonsense; it is all cloud.

The delta comes in the form of access.

Many enterprises have, in fact, not built a cloud but done some infrastructure automation, automation that serves the purposes of the infrastructure and operations folks but is not a cloud.

So what’s the distinction?

A cloud is all about the API and after the API it is all about the content.

If a service cannot be requested, acquired and operated via an API you do not have a cloud. If the underlying infrastructure is not terminated automatically based on demand (or lack of it) and returned to a pool of available capacity…. you guessed it; it is not a cloud.

Forget where the cloud is, you should not care.
