Community Storage clouds provide a secure, multi-tenant, scale-out storage service at a local or regional level.
What defines a Community Storage Cloud?
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-145 defines a Community Cloud as cloud infrastructure provisioned for exclusive use by a specific community of consumers from organizations that have shared concerns (e.g., mission, security requirements, policy, and compliance considerations). It may be owned, managed, and operated by one or more of the organizations in the community, a third party, or some combination of them, and it may exist on or off premises.
