On any Microsoft earnings day, Wall Street analysts are focused almost entirely on the Microsoft’s cloud. Hence, it’s a good time to attempt to define again what Microsoft means when it says “cloud.”

On the company’s quarterly earnings calls, Microsoft officials talk a lot about “the intelligent cloud.” In that bucket, Microsoft includes revenues from Azure (public cloud), private and hybrid server products and services.
