Provisioning in cloud computing refers to the process of setting up or configuring the necessary hardware and software to create a cloud environment.
Provisioning works by setting up the necessary hardware and software resources, and then configuring them to create a cloud environment.
A cloud service provider, CloudServe, uses automated provisioning to quickly set up new environments for their customers. When a customer signs up for a new service, a provisioning script runs that sets up the necessary resources, installs the required software, and configures the network settings. This allows CloudServe to provide a ready-to-use environment to their customers in a matter of minutes.
