Forums - Microsoft Discussion - PSA: Dedicated Servers is the new Cloud

The Cloud Dedicated Servers

 

"The Cloud" is now outdated, MS replaced it with "Dedicated Servers" which is more realistic and grounded imo.

Stay frosty folks.

Same thing, different name.

Just put enough dedicated servers into place and there you go, a private cloud. Simple as that.

Cloud based dedicated servers don't quite work like that.

Isn't that something different though. Cloud = general purpose computing != dedicated server. I guess you can have virtual dedicated servers.

Seems the cloud buzzword has too much bullshit hanging onto it, so now it's dedicated servers, sounds better. Still the same distributed computing platform I assume, simulating scale-able virtual dedicated servers. Better than dedicated servers is some ways, worse in others.

and yet people still don't get it. Still making the mistake of calling it the cloud

There is no clear definition of "cloud". It's a marketing term that gets used differently from company to company. In the broadest sense cloud is nothing more than a server(or server farm) connected to the internet. The purpose of that server is defined by whoever uses it. It's a stupid term and I don't know anyone in IT who has the slightest appreciation for it as it is just a buzzword for a thing that literally existed since the beginning of the internet.

The FTP server I have at home is as much a cloud as a high end server farm for distributed computing.
