Yes but you are missing the point.  Not everything that Fedora does is
connected to Red Hat.

Which has nothing to do with what I said.  Fedora has been a extensive
user of virtualization for many years and extending it for new use cases
is not something fundamentally new.  Fedora infrastructure wants to
provide more service for Fedora contributors and users.

Sure or it might just be a Fedora infrastructure offering for
contributors or it can be a paid service to host your backups or it can
be a set of components to run on your own server.  It all depends on
what your particular idea of "cloud computing" actually is.
