NIST [3] has made e orts to provide a uni ed way to de ne cloud computing and its main functionality. Despite its complexity and heterogeneous nature, NIST has identi ed ve essential characteristics that represent a cloud computing platform: On-demand self-service: Cloud computing vendors o er provision of cloud resources on demand whenever they are required by adopters.
