Recently reading some articles on Cloud Computing and I came up across a number of different interpretations and definitions for a hybrid “cloud” concept, where a component or components of the application runs locally and some component running in the cloud. Other wise known as a web-based application 😉
Everything now has to have a pseudonym with a cloud moniker… “So I’ll call it a metacloud”, what like metadata is where data describes other data, therefore a metacloud can describe other clouds. No wait!!!! that’s the stupid way ’round! You get the idea 🙂
As my wife calls it “the emperors new clothes” syndrome, branding something to make it new and exciting.
