    For a moment I thought you meant just the domain name ...

    Seems like a great buy, the name will really help them own the sector.

    Maybe not that domain - but, that day will arrive - unless somebody reinvents the internet. Scary thought eh :D

    Despite a pretty good understanding already, Ive spent the last couple of days getting myself up to speed on 'Cloud' (remote sevices) Does anybody know where the word "Cloud" as a computing term originated from or its first use.

    I know it was originally thought of as a term for strictly "Data Storage" but i'd still like to get a better understanding of the terms evolution.

    Jesus - how strange is that to talk about "evolution" as something that is no more than a few years old

    tut tut,

    Domain speculation does require a level of connection to the infrastructure - even if you don't connect with the descriptives - Anyway how is cuckooland these days ?

    'The Cloud' is simply a marketing term. There is no definition and many companies interpret it in many ways ranging from a simple slice of a server to high availability failover, usage billing, scaling etc to software as a service.

    Many companies are just jumping on the bandwagon and marketing products which have been around for ever as 'cloud' solutions.

    The term cloud I would guess comes from the fact that the internet was always drawn as a cloud on network diagrams and similar to signify a network you dont control.
