5 key characteristics of the cloud

Everyone loves a good acronym, and we’ve got a new one for you on the cloud, courtesy of Joe Weinman, SVP of Cloud Services and Strategy of Telx, at GigaOM’s Structure Europe conference on Thursday in London. Here you go:

1). Common

2). Location independent

3). Online

4). Utility, pay per use pricing

5). on Demand resources, where there shouldn’t be a variation in the work load.

Five attributes for you to remember that make up the cloud — and an acronym to boot!
