The cloud is a buzzword that is used in so many contexts and scenarios that it can be difficult to unravel, especially for people not in IT. A recent Hollywood movie encapsulated the mystery and ambiguity that surrounds "the cloud" when one of its characters exclaimed, "Nobody understands the cloud! It's a mystery!" We decided to ask VMworld attendees how they deal with explaining the mystery of the cloud to non-IT people to see how they articulate the concept in layman's terms.
