Distributed computing is defined as "A distributed system is a collection of independent computers that appears to its users as a single coherent system 

- Tanenbaum (book - “Distributed Systems-Principles and Paradigm”)

"Cloud Computing sets the stage for a new approach to IT that enables individuals and businesses to choose how they'll acquire or deliver IT services, with reduced emphasis on the constraints of traditional software and hardware licensing models” 

David Cearley, VP of Gartner
