Quick summary of what the "cloud" is, not too bad:
Basically the same old stuff we were doing 30 years ago with a big central server and green terminals, but this time with the internet in the middle and lots of HTML cr*p and megabytes of badly written Javascript for most of it, trying to replace the horrible ESC sequences for VT100. That makes all the ozzie ISPs happy, since their meters go ding-ding!
Sorry... ;)
