    A search in your favorite search engine for "cloud computing" would be a good place to start. As you will see, exactly what "cloud computing" means depends on the exact context. It is a technical term given to several different but related concepts, and it is also a popular marketing term.

    This section of the forum is for CloudLinux (which is a cPanel partner), not "cloud computing" in general. CloudLinux has a very specific purpose: to try to prevent one shared hosting user from using all of the resources on a shared hosting server. You can learn all about it on the CloudLinux site:

    CloudLinux OS

    CloudLinux is really not about making it possible for you to run your own "cloud" at all. It is simply a name given to a Linux kernel and some utilities that can be added to a CentOS installation to increase control over shared hosting users.

    "Cloud computing" is in such common use as a buzzword, that it is best to ask for specific details about what it means, from anyone who is trying to sell you a "cloud"-based product.

    Personally, and this is personally speaking (I'm not an educator or anything) the first things are learning operating system and network fundementals, I'd imagine you're getting a good dose of those if you're on a comp sci / engineering course anyway, but I know some courses do skip them in the depth they ought to be covered.

    A lot of the technologies in use are out there for you to play with, although this will to an extent depend on what hw your labs provide you with and what they'll let you do...

    You might also like to watch out for "mistakes" that make it to the media such as ProfitBricks budget cloud in SECURITY FAIL • The Register these probably happen a hell of a lot more than get reported
