Recently we have been really overwhelmed by the Cloud. TechNode did one Powering the China Cloud conference which we have it covered intensively, and several days before that, CSDN, the largest developer communities in China co-organized a 3days conference (called the 3rd China Cloud Computing conference) which also focus on the Cloud. Both events were packed with great speakers from different background, ranging from phone manufacturer such as HTC, Ericsson, etc, tablet manufacture such as eBen.cn to traditional internet companies like Tencent, RenRen etc and mobile service provider, doMob (Mobile Ads), iFlyTek (cloud voice solution), Maiku (cloud storage) etc.

We understand that Cloud Computing is not a new concept or technology. It’s been there for years but this Cloud seemed far away, I mean, from the majority of end-consumers in past several years. The reason is quite obvious, there were very few good (Cloud) applications that people really need every day. Thanks to the fast growing mobile Internet market, such as smart phones, 3g/4g networks etc, we have started feeling the change. I mean, from technology point of view, we are more ready for the Cloud Computing. The question is, why is China so excited about Cloud Computing? The answer given by Prof. Ni GuangNan from China Academy of Engineering is a bit surprising, but indeed makes sense:

“In the traditional PC industry, China got no chance.” Ni said, “till now, we still don’t have the core technology of the WinTel architecture, and what we’ve been working on in past is simply Assembling all components.”
