The world’s first cloud computing patent was submitted on December 24, 1999 by Hardy F. Schloer[1] and granted by the UK and German patent offices can be found on the European Patent Register[2] and at Google Patents[3].

Schloer termed his system a “one page web” and explains the “method and device for presenting data to a user (in what has become known as “the cloud“). It is complete with:

 multiple user applications  Cloud storage  Multiple identification providers  Back-end servers – including plug-in applications  Multiple tiers of servers capable of handling different end-user devices via the internet  Built-in security features

Schloer is the inventor and holder of many Information Technology (IT) related patents. CitizenHuman (talk) 09:11, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

FROM

Since 2000, cloud computing has come into existence.

TO

Since 2000 cloud computing has come into existence, because in the last days of 1999 a patent was filed for a "one page web" by Hardy Schloer, making it the first known Cloud computing implementation [1]. The patent was put to use in England and Germany[2] and Mr. Schloer explained the technology as a “method and device for presenting data to a user" consisting of:

  • Multiple user applications
  • Cloud storage
  • Multiple identification providers
  • Back-end servers – including plug-in applications
  • Multiple tiers of servers capable of handling different end-user devices via the internet
  • Built-in security features CitizenHuman (talk) 13:14, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

In 1999, on December 24, the first known Cloud computing implementation was submitted for patent protection[3] and put to use by Hardy Schloer in England and Germany[4].

I would like to enhance the block Platform as a Service, adding information about one more model of PaaS:

CHANGE FROM:

Generally, public cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Oracle, Microsoft and Google own and operate the infrastructure at their data center and access is generally via the Internet. AWS, Oracle, Microsoft, and Google also offer direct connect services called "AWS Direct Connect", "Oracle FastConnect", "Azure ExpressRoute", and "Cloud Interconnect" respectively, such connections require customers to purchase or lease a private connection to a peering point offered by the cloud provider.[40][87]

One more model is when PaaS provides its services via hosting partners and their local data centers, like Jelastic PaaS [1] Mariia Hepalova (talk) 13:51, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Virtual Data Center[edit]

A virtual data center is a pool or collection of cloud infrastructure resources specifically designed for enterprise business needs. The basic resources are the processor (CPU), memory (RAM), storage (disk space) and networking (bandwidth). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spirit10000 (talkcontribs) 10:41, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

This Page is supposed to be about Cloud Computing and not Amazon Cloud (EC2). Cloud Computing has been around since the 90s and Private Clouds have been built since mid 2000s Even now we have different Cloud models, Private Cloud, Public Cloud (Amazon, Azure and GCP) and Hybrid Cloud.

Please remove references to Amazon EC2 with generic cloud computing concepts. This incorrectly equates Amazon EC2 as Cloud while excluding private cloud and other cloud computing concepts.

P.S. Amazon EC2 although being the most mature public cloud implementation out of GCP, Azure and AWS. is still immature and years behind private cloud or an enterprise capabilities. Xarcity (talk) 00:02, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

 Partly done: You will have to be more specific and include specific sources for more complicated changes, but I have adjusted the lede per your suggestion. The lede is a summary of the body, but the body doesn't seem like it emphasizes Amazon or EC2 as fundamentally and historically important enough that it needs to be highlighted in this way. The first mention of Amazon in the body is cited to a press release, which suggests WP:OR. None of the three sources in the lede, from my assessment, emphasize Amazon in this way either.

First usage of the concept[edit]

I have reverted the addition of an alleged first introduction of this concept by Hardy F. Schloer. True or not, this is a strong extraordinary claim and needs sourcing by an acknowledged expert in a reliable mainstream publication who thoroughly analyzes this claim in context. Primary sources like patents are insufficient for such a strong claim, as are student projects or mere conference papers with a passing mention that have been published on a NGO website and republished in a minor journal (that is apparently connected to the NGO and focusses on mere republications of such conference papers). The authors' expertise and academic credentials in the mentioned school are also unclear - again such a strong claim should be made by an acknowledged reputed expert. Wikipedia is no venue to popularize new ideas and theories from research scholars and students with insufficient coverage in academic expert sources. GermanJoe (talk) 12:47, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

I agree; this clearly shouldn't be in the article. power~enwiki (π, ν) 16:38, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
