RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"The high-level vision for cloud computing is that it “flattens” the computational and storage abstractions in a way analogous to the way in which the Internet network protocols 'flatten' the network....

Cloud Computing is the programmatic provisioning of services to a user community whose requests are scaling dynamically through a transactional and asynchronous network-facing interface.

This definition reflects the state of play in terms of cloud computing systems today from an operational perspective. To begin with, clouds provide services to users in a way that can be accessed through applications or software user tools. Thus the model is immediately a service model in which users appeal to a service venue for computational service. At the same time, clouds are designed (for cost reasons) to support simultaneous user communities that fluctuate in size dynamically. The user experience is also transactional in that access is through a set of discrete requests, each of which is either accepted or refused. It is asynchronous for reasons of scale. Each request is accepted or rejected transactionally, but the result of an accepted request may be realized at a point in time (hopefully as soon as possible) after the transaction. Finally, the interface is network-facing, meaning that the service venue interacts with users via requests and responses across a network."
