The framework NIST is suggesting has 5 main attributes to a cloud's user experience and 21 examples of what those involve. They're meant to serve as a guide to explain what most people expect when they try to use a cloud system. It's going to be part of the next volume of the agency's Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap, the third installment of that particular series. NIST expects that roadmap to come out in the next six months.
