Cloud is an expression used to describe computing concepts which involve a large number of computers that are connected through a real-time communication network; typically the Internet. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale over that network.

With cloud services, you buy access to cloud computing, cloud storage and other resources on demand over the network. You procure IT services, not assets, and AT&T delivers services when and where you need them. You pay only for what you use. If you need a flexible, cost-effective alternative for delivering IT services – in a way that complements existing systems, staffs and processes – cloud services can be an ideal solution. Cloud services move capital equipment assets off the balance sheet, turning them into a monthly expense item. Unlike a capital cost, it’s not a perpetual commitment – you can turn the service off or on as needed.

AT&T has a rich portfolio of services that provide the fundamental tenants for Enterprise grade cloud and hosting solutions: performance, security, control, reliability.
