NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Everyone now seems to know the Cloud is not just the Next Big Thing, but the biggest thing ever.
An architecture based on a virtual operating system that lets a host of commodity servers do the work of the fastest alternative hardware, cloud was pioneered by Google (GOOG) early in the last decade, then turned into a business by Amazon.com (AMZN) as Amazon Web Services.
AWS is an infrastructure for computing, sold as a service. The acronym is IaaS. Add software languages to the infrastructure -- the tools with which you write software -- and you have a Platform as a Service, or PaaS.
