infographic: The History of Cloud Computing

Recently we had a lively discussion on the origins and definition of cloud computing. We eventually agreed that the ubiquitous “cloud” in 2016 still means different things to different vendors, businesses, government agencies and the general public. 

After some entertaining research, we created an infographic to  highlight key events from the last 50 years leading up to the 2016 version of cloud – be it public, private, hybrid, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, etc.
