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)

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]

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. Alucard 16❯❯❯ chat? 15:25, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
Note that this may be a WP:SELFCITE. It may be acceptable, but it should be checked for conflict of interest. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:26, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

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
