Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

You're right - the could is anything but services available over the internet.
Just like Web 2.0 and AJAX, they're just a shorter version of what's changed. there were many buzzwords, but Web 2.0 and AJAX stood the scrutiny of time. The cloud is also over 5 years old now(arguably, starting with Amazon's EC2).

While there was other ways of updating the page from another server they were extremely hackish.

XHR (sometimes known as AJAX) had options for "updating the page from another server" only via a vulnerability type called Cross-Site Scripting. It's still very hackish to get data into one page from one domain from another domain.
