Definition: Cloud Computing
I throw around some web words sometimes, just figuring many people know what they mean. Here is a good definition of a word (or combo of two words) which is very big in the “Web 2.0″ world – cloud computing:
“What is cloud computing? It is basically an Internet-based network made up of large numbers of servers – mostly based on open standards, modular and inexpensive. Clouds contain vast amounts of information and provide a variety of services to large numbers of people. Users of the cloud only care about the service or information they are accessing – be it from their PCs, mobile devices, or anything else connected to the Internet – not about the underlying details of how the cloud works.”
