Cloud Computing is a new phrase that is still in its infancy, but check out the wide variety of answers to get an idea about it in this video.
CNET was at the Web 2.0 Expo and interviewed a lot of great folks on their definition of “Cloud Computing,” as it relates to Web 2.0.
My definition of cloud computing would probably be like this:
Cloud Computing is the infrastructure where backend processes are unified, open and accessible for third-parties to transmit and receive data, effectively scaling the size, data and functionality of a network exponentially as users contriubte data. Essentially, Cloud Computing is the process to conjoin two proprietary networks at the hip and make it run a marathon.
Good? Bad? WTF? I’m interested in what’s on your mind, hollar in the comments below!
