Isn't 'cloud' properly a marketing term ... that is now being abused by technical folks.

I see the cloud as online storage. For example Steam backups saved games to the cloud. Whatever PC you log into your saved games move with you.
A work example would be dropbox. You have a folder on different computers that are all linked via online storage. Whatever you dump into that folder shows up on in the same folder on all linked computers. That folder is in the cloud so to speak.
A cloud is more than just online back it’s a link to the same files between different computers. The cloud also tends to be relative automatic.
Another example would be logging into a web browse on different computers with a cloud based system that moved your favourites around with you.

We are thinking of allowing the staff and student access to some cloud online storage, maybe even google docs/cloud. Has anyone got any thoughts on this? Advantages/disadvantages? Suggestions?
