Re: Windows 10 social timeline

Well not just "other people's computers"... the cloud providers are doing things completely differently than the average data center, much more efficiently, and at about 10,000x scale.

Agree that it the term "private cloud" makes no sense. The definition of cloud is that you just pull resources down immediately as needed and hand them back at anytime. Only pay for exactly what you are using at any time. Never needing to own anything. The compute is just so ubiquitous and easy to access it is as though it is coming down from a cloud... You can argue that cloud doesn't make sense to utilize... but it so clearly does make sense that the VMwares of the world are trying to confuse the terms.
