Dave's List of Cloud Computing Resources

About Daveslist

I created this website to highlight the 4 essential characteristics customers should look for in a Cloud Computing service. Using a service without these characteristics is not necessarily wrong, but I do not believe you are effectively benefiting Cloud Computing without them.


While Dave Nielsen create the worked persistently for many years to narrow down and describe these specific characteristics concisely with the OSSM acronym, it could not have been possible without input, feedback and discussions from 1000's of CloudCampers over 100's of CloudCamps in dozens of countries.
