Application Service Provider
Become Your Own Application Service Provide with Eucalyptus
When people talk about application service providers, they're usually thinking about vendor-supplied external infrastructure or platform services to underpin cloud applications. Perhaps a company doesn't want to maintain any IT infrastructure or wants to evolve toward modern application service platforms offered by advanced cloud service providers.
What companies with on-premise datacenters sometimes forget is that THEY can become modern application service providers by repurposing some or all of their existing infrastructure as AWS-com abstraction layer on top of existing IT assets. Companies can create their own private clouds or hybrid environments that combine AWS and private cloud services in a seamless manner.
