Cloud Enabler

Definition - What does Cloud Enabler mean?

Cloud enabler refers to the technologies and manufacturers that serve as the backbone for all cloud computing products and services. A broad term incorporating technology vendors and solutions, a cloud enabler allows an organization to build, deploy, integrate and deliver cloud computing solutions.

Techopedia explains Cloud Enabler

Cloud enablers are primarily IT firms that develop hardware, software, storage, networking and other related product serving as a cloud environment component. For example, an organization that develops virtualization hypervisor enables the development of virtual machines, virtual private servers and other virtualization based cloud solutions.

A cloud enabler differs from a cloud service provider, as the latter utilizes technologies built by the former to deliver cloud services to end users and other organizations.
