Which definition describes the Platform as a Service offering?
It facilitates application deployment without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware, software, and provisioning hosting capabilities.
A company decides to make some development and application environments available as cloud services. What should they do to reduce the management overhead of the cloud service catalog?
They should populate the cloud service catalog with standardized development and application environments.
What is the benefit of Service Automation Management in cloud computing?
It reduces IT operational costs by minimizing operator involvement.
Which IT optimization characteristic is required for cloud computing?
One of the steps for cloud adoption is standardizing platforms. Which sentence describes this?
