To me "Cloud Computing" means mostly PaaS:
- Billing by the hour or by the resource
- API to provision new instances
- Some sort of a virtualization technology that allows for elastic
instances (e.g.: I can double the RAM of a virtual node through the API)
There is also the use of it as "stored in the cloud", by which I think is
what most people use (tech and non-tech folk). This is the use that will be
with us for a long time since everybody is talking about it.
