Clarifying some terminologies over Cloud Computing
By vtatkar on Jan 09, 2009
Its not unusual that a new technology trend like Cloud Computing has a whole slew of confusing terms and acronyms for some fairly simple, straightforward concepts. Bugging, but not unusual :-)
So, if you're confused (like me), here are some pointers that might help.
I have found that this blog does a good job of Demystifying Iaas, PaaS, SaaS and other terms . . These are the three major categories.
Moreover, Peter Laird, has done a remarkable job of creating a Visual Map of Cloud Computing Landscape".
Thank you, Roman, for this recommendation!
Both of these are good overviews. Hope it helps you as it has helped me understand the overall picture.
