A Cloud computing vocabulary test

Just when you thought technology was getting easier, we've created a new world of Cloud computing terminology.

From Cloudsourcing to Cloudstorming to Cloudburst (which can be both negative and positive) a new set of terminology has arrived. It was inevitable. Embrace the Cloud.

Over on Thinking Out Cloud, Geva Perry outlines some of the new Cloud Computing Terminology, which does start to sound a bit like Dr. Seuss after a while.

These new terms help to explain the various aspects of the Cloud and somewhere down the line it starts to show that the internet and SOA have come together. Nonetheless, make sure you hold your breath lest you drown in the metaphorical sky.
