This "cloudy" project has absolutely nothing to do with this feature or 
with FAL.

The aim of the "cloudy" project is 'to be able to host TYPO3 in the 
different cloudbased enviroments'. That is: to *run* TYPO3 in a cloud 
based server.

The feature I mentioned (and the FAL drivers I mentioned) aims to use 
files / images / etcetera from a remote source (not necessarily cloud 
based) and support (part of the) processing on the remote source. (For 
example: you have an image server and when you request one of the images 
you can set the size in your request. That way TYPO3 wouldn't need to 
download a 12MB full size image for a thumbnail and do the resizing in 

Besides allowing remote processing, other 'drivers' could provide 
support for the IMagick and GMagick PHP libraries, Imagine, or whatever 
other graphics processor.
