what does "a cloud" mean in this context ?

to me, a cloud is a set of homogenous servers running distributed 
applications.   classic cloud is google.    the term has been degraded 
to also refer to a stack of servers running a virtualization platform 
such that the individual VMs don't care what hardware they are assigned 
to, classic example of a VM cloud is Amazon AWS.

I don't understand how ANYTHING you do on a single server could be 
called 'cloudy'.
