Cloud Provisioning

The phrase cloud provisioning refers to the deployment of a company’s cloud computing strategy, which typically involves selecting which applications and services will reside in the public cloud and which will remain on site behind the firewall or in the private cloud. Cloud provisioning also entails developing the processes for interfacing with the cloud s applications and services as well as auditing and monitoring who accesses and utilizes the resources.

The most common reference to cloud provisioning is when a company seeks to transition some or all of its existing applications to the cloud without having to significantly re-architect or re-engineer the applications.
