Cloud Computing Defined —–

Just like Simple/Complex words like LIFE have several meaning, so does this term cloud computing, I guess.  I don’t belong to a place which defines this but Sam from Appistry wrote an interesting one at  –

The Blind Men and the Cloud

It was six men of Info Tech

        To learning much inclined,

Who went to see the Cloud

        (Though all of them were blind),

That each by observation

        Might satisfy his mind

The First approached the Cloud,

        So sure that he was boasting

“I know exactly what this is…

       This Cloud is simply Hosting.”

The Second grasped within the Cloud,

        Saying, “No it’s obvious to me,

This Cloud is grid computing…

        Servers working together in harmony!”

The Third, in need of an answer,

        Cried, "Ho! I know its source of power

It’s a utility computing solution

       Which charges by the hour.”

The Fourth reached out to touch it,

        It was there, but it was not   

“Virtualization,” said he.

        “That’s precisely what we’ve got!”

The Fifth, so sure the rest were wrong

        Declared “It’s sass you fools,

Applications with no installation

        It’s breaking all the rules!"

The Sixth (whose name was Benioff),

        Felt the future he did know,

He made haste in boldly stating,           

        “This *IS* Web 3.0.”

And so these men of Info Tech

        Disputed loud and long,

Each in his own opinion

        Exceeding stiff and strong,

Though each was partly in the right,

        And all were partly wrong!
