My simple definition of “cloud computing” is:
Something a computer does that MY computer doesn’t do.
That could be computing, or storage, or application execution, web hosting – doesn’t matter – it just isn’t done by MY computer.
SaaS is the cloud as much as web hiosting is the cloud.Â The cloud is what is online, from photos to backups.Â Â Soon enough the cloud will have standards, just s WiFi has them.Â And I saw how WiFi grew.Â I rode that pony. The cloud is bigger.
But it needs standards.Â Soon.Â At least in nomenclature.
