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)

This includes data caps, which are placed on cloud users by the cloud vendor allocating certain amount of bandwidth for each customer and are often shared among other cloud users.[120] [1]

Clarity and neutrality[edit]

Daveburstein (talk) 23:17, 10 February 2019 (UTC) I rewrote the first few paragraphs to make them more understandable to a non-technical user. I also removed or reworked what I considered non-neutral. It would be good to do similar for the whole article. Dave

Edit History[edit]


I am requesting to update the history section and add a paragraph about the BSCW system being the first system that you would call "cloud" today. It was developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology and published in 1995. There is a article about it on their page that can be found at It is also included at the german Cloud Computing Wikipedia page. I think it would be a good addition to the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by OrbiTeam (talkcontribs) 09:56, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
