However, private clouds can now be completely outsourced to a host, who ends up providing the required services and infrastructures, While the end user taps into the resources offered by the provider.

As the technology evolves, larger virtual storage areas will become tangible and servers will gain greater performance capability. The mode of communication between the end user and the service provider will get to a new dimension, where all storage will become cloud based.

Redhat the master vender in linux distribution has established its own platform as the de facto standards for open cloud computing

With its API 1.0 release, Deltacloud offers a variety of front-ends, which is to say interfaces through which users make a request to a cloud provider.
