NIST Working Definition for Cloud Computing - Version 15

NIST - Cloud Computing:
NIST is posting its working definition of cloud computing that serves as a foundation for its upcoming publication on the topic (link). Computer scientists at NIST developed this draft definition in collaboration with industry and government. It was developed as the foundation for a NIST special publication that will cover cloud architectures, security, and deployment strategies for the federal government.

NIST’s role in cloud computing is to promote the effective and secure use of the technology within government and industry by providing technical guidance and promoting standards.
