Cloud Computing … in 140 Characters or Less

There has been a light-hearted little project on Twitter this morning challenging people to provide a “non-geek definition of Cloud Computing in 140 characters less.”  Launched by Chris Horak, SAP Platform Marketing Head in Germany, responses are compiled on Chris’ blog.

My first attempt was “Cloud computing provides application, database, platform, storage, and computing services in a virtualized utility to enable agile business.”

Chris thought that might be a bit too geeky, so I suggested, “Using computing services on demand, on a pay-as-you-go basis, like I buy electricity from my power utility.”

So, what do you think?  Send your 140 words (or less) to Chris (@choirshark).  Enjoy!
