As the NHL’s annual convention nears, it’s time to put together a definition of the term “cloud computing.”
As of this month, the league is expected to release a report that will define cloud computing, as defined by the NHL Players Association.
The league will also consider using the term in future discussions with the media.
The report will define “cloud” as “an area of an electronic device that is used by an internet service provider to store, process, transmit, process data and/or access information, whether for purposes of computing, viewing, or sharing, and that is accessed by an online service provider through the internet or other networked computer.”
The NHLPA has been vocal about the importance of cloud computing since it was formed in 2009.
The union has consistently lobbied for the term to be used in the collective bargaining process.
The NHLPA is currently in the midst of a legal fight with Microsoft over the use of the word “cloud.”
The union is seeking an injunction against Microsoft, and the Supreme Court has recently ruled that the term is protected by the First Amendment.
According to the report, the term cloud computing refers to “an electronic device or infrastructure that is connected to a computer network by a computer.”
The report includes two sets of definitions: “cloud storage,” which includes all the files and data stored in the cloud; and “cloud compute,” which refers to the process of using data from a cloud computing service to make the data more useful.
“Cloud computing” is the first time the league has defined the term, and its inclusion in the report was a surprise.
The term has become a staple of discussions about the league’s future, with players and union officials pushing for the NHL to define it more broadly.
According the report:Cloud computing, a term that was first used in 2009 by the NFL Players Association to describe the digital media services offered by cloud computing providers, is not used by the league in the context of its business.
Instead, the NHL is focused on a number of different uses of the terms cloud and computing.
In general, cloud computing is used in connection with the operation of an Internet service provider (ISP) and a virtual private network (VPN) provider.
It also includes the provision of a platform or service that provides access to a network of servers to support the online services provided by a VPN service provider, such as a video game service.
It is also used to refer to the provision and operation of a server-to-server connection to an Internet access service provider that provides online gaming services, including a gaming platform, or to a virtual network that provides peer-to -peer communication to a shared gaming platform.
Cloud computing also includes servers that provide services to the cloud computing platform, including data processing, caching, caching storage, processing services, and networking services.
Cloud storage is the process by which a service provider stores information on a computer and provides access thereto.
It does not include the storage of data on a personal device or on an external storage server such as hard drives or a cloud-based service such as Amazon S3.
The term cloud compute also refers to a service or technology that provides computing capabilities to a cloud service provider.
In this context, cloud compute refers to any software program or technology, including software for an internet-connected device that allows the service provider access to data from the cloud.
The NHL also is exploring the use and adoption of other definitions, including “cloud data,” which could refer to a specific piece of information.
According to the league, “cloud-based data” refers to information stored on a provider’s servers that can be accessed by the service that is a “cloud provider” and that the service can control, monitor, or provide other services to.
The league will not be using the terms “cloud,” “cloud service,” or “cloud infrastructure” in its reports for the foreseeable future.
In an attempt to keep the term simple, the report also will not use the word cloud in the definition.
The goal of the report is to provide clarity for NHL officials and other league members as they plan their collective bargaining negotiations with Microsoft and other players’ union members.
“We are exploring ways to define ‘cloud’ in the future and we will be publishing a final report that addresses the evolving usage of the cloud,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.
The NFLPA will continue to work with the NHL and its players’ association to discuss ways to ensure the league defines cloud computing and to support its collective bargaining agreement.
