ITSM is a process framework for managing IT as services, while Cloud Computing is a set of technologies used to deliver IT as services. The objective of ITSM in Cloud Computing is to reduce IT costs and to meet user demand for IT Services at any given moment.
What are the key benefits of Public Cloud Computing?
- Reduced set-up, maintenance, and labor costs as this is covered by the service provider.
- Greater elasticity and scalability to meet your specific needs.
- No wasted resources; you pay for what you use.
Public (or external) Cloud Computing differs from internal Cloud Computing in the way in which it is open and available for general public use, and access is created and maintained by a third party. This particular type of Cloud Computing is a viable option for any company or individual. Its practicality allows users to obtain open access to shared information without the added stress of using hardware or server technology. This benefit of course relies on the fact that the Cloud itself is being hosted effectively.
