Elasticity - Third cloud attribute
By llaszews on Oct 22, 2011
Elasticity refers being able to dynamically provision, migrate, and allocate computing resources to users, departments or customers. It includes the infrastructure to easy set up and ‘tear down’ applications. One of the first areas that customers focus on when moving to the cloud is developer and User Acceptance Testing (UAT) environments. The ability to quick set up a new test environment and then delete it once the testing is done is a cost effective and time saving exercise when done using cloud computing.
