turnkey cloud

Contributor(s): Gina Narcisi

A turnkey cloud is a product that includes pre-tested and certified packages of software and/or hardware and storage that a cloud provider or enterprise can deploy quickly. Turnkey clouds are especially attractive to organizations that lack the resources needed to build a customized cloud environment.

As of this writing, turnkey clouds are especially popular with value-added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) who wish to quickly add cloud services -- especially cloud storage and cloud back-up services -- to their catalogs.
