Cloud-in-a-Can

Definition - What does Cloud-in-a-Can mean?

A cloud-in-a-can is a single product that allows a company to deploy a private virtual environment protected by a firewall. Cloud-in-a-can products are intended to reduce the costs of setting up cloud infrastructure. Cloud-in-a-can solutions are usually a combination of software and the hardware needed to run it properly.

Cloud-in-a-can solutions are also referred to as cloud-in-a-box.

Techopedia explains Cloud-in-a-Can

Cloud-in-can is a business IT solution that is intended to allow a company to set up a private cloud in a relatively short period of time. The company also reduces future compatibility issues by deploying a cloud with standardized architecture. Once the cloud-in-a-can is deployed, the company simply needs to integrate the cloud functions with the existing databases and software. Ideally, this streamlining significantly shortens the timeline to complete the implementation of a private cloud.
