Rob VandenBrink at SANS has done the world a GREAT service. He’s put together a blog piece that breaks down the different types of services that are commonly referred to as “the cloud.”

They include:

— Colocation Services
— Host as a Service (HaaS) / Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
— Computer as a Service (CaaS) or Desktop as a Service (DaaS)
— Platform as a Service (Paas)
— Software as a Service (SaaS)
— Private Clouds

It’s a very nice, quick read:
