Meeting Topic: DFW IT Pro July 1st UG – Cloud 101 The Past, Present and Future of the public cloud
Topic Description: The term "cloud" is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network, and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents.
