Top Definition
"Cloud Confusing" is a term used for incorrectly defining Cloud Computing. Sales reps and naive IT Consultants use the term Cloud Computing to refer to any client/server system where the server resides on the internet, and is maintained via a web-based interface.

Cloud Computing actually is much more involved than client/server technology. Distributed processing, data storage, bandwidth, and scalability are able to be added or removed with no harm to existing data, and there is no single point of bottleneck or failure.
IT Consultant: "We offer Cloud Computing as part of your hosting package! Now you can maintain your own CMS, Blog, Forums, and lots of other contemporary services on your site!"

Developer: "Those are simple client/server hosting applications on your server. What you're talking about is Cloud Confusing."
