“The cloud” is a term often as nebulous as the images it evokes.

But while some companies take advantage of that vagueness and use the opportunity to cloudwash their products (to great financial effect), others attempt to bring clarity and feet-on-the-ground solutions that, while a bit complicated for layfolk to understand, make up the best in today’s cloud technologies.

In a recent chat in VentureBeat’s video studio, Joyent CTO and founder Jason Hoffman talks with us about the real cloud, the “cloud” of consumer-facing companies and the Internet of Things — the coming world of universal device connectivity.
