Cloud Bottlenecks

Not Clouds

Providers of application INDEPENDENT compute power (like virtual machines e.g. Vultr, AWS etc.) are NOT Clouds, as they do NOT dictate what software you can run of their machines and they do not access your data as part of their business model.

We call these providers Hosters, as they host computers remotely for their customers. Hosters plays an important part within the Citizen Ecosystem.

A few online services like Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap are not, but most are.
