Question by tefa: What are the differences between the Cloud Computing Model and the Client-Server Model ?

Best answer:

Answer by crimsonsamurai
Client-Server is more localized while the Cloud is global. The Client-Server can essentially be a sub-directory of the wider encompassing Cloud but not always.

On a scale lets assume the Client-Server is your network, the Cloud is then the rest of the world network outside of your core (server) gateway, and can technically be measured to infinity; which is what the cloud represents.
