Everywhere you look, smart IT companies all over the world are touting Cloud Computing as the future of the IT industry. But here is the thing, for all the hotness of the term, what does Cloud even mean? The term is somewhat amorphous. It has multiple meanings to different people. For one person, the Cloud might mean the process of virtualizing all of the services needed to run an office.
