Definitions Edit

A commodity service is

an information system service (e.g., telecommunications service) provided by a commercial service provider typically to a large and diverse set of consumers. The organization acquiring and/or receiving the commodity service possesses limited visibility into the management structure and operations of the provider, and while the organization may be able to negotiate service-level agreements, the organization is typically not in a position to require that the provider implement specific security controls.[1]

Commodity services are

systems or services used to carry out routine tasks (e.g., e-mail, data centers, and web infrastructure).[2]
