Seth is helping his organization move their web server cluster to a cloud provider. The goal of this move is to provide the cluster with the ability to grow and shrink based upon changing demand. What characteristic of cloud computing is Seth hoping to achieve?
B. On-Demand Self-Service
D. Broad Network Access
Correct Answer: C
The reality is that Seth will likely achieve all of these goals but the most relevant one is elasticity. Elasticity refers to the ability of a system to dynamically grow and shrink based upon the current level of demand. Scalability refers to the ability of a system to grow as demand increases but does not require the ability to shrink.
