What is Cloud Computing?

Someone from the non-technical business side asked me what is this Cloud computing all about. If you search for the term you find a bunch of definitions and descriptions. For example, on Wikipedia:

“Cloud computing refers to the delivery of computing and storage capacity as a service to a heterogeneous community of end-recipients.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing.

That doesn’t sound like anything new. We had similar things even in the sixties. You have to read more of the above article to see the differences. But, to see what it really means a blog post, “Startups are Creating a New System of the World for IT“, puts it in context.
