I think maybe there’s something to this

I think maybe there’s something to this “cloud” thing.

Going to name my next company/project: “Fred” or “Scout”.

I’m getting tired of “cutesy” names.  We seem to have used up all the good strong names that really tell about what a company does.  We’ve been inventing names for a decade now to accomodate the dot.com and technology boom.  It seems that everything “thematic” relating to cloud computing has been completely exhausted.  Steve Martin did a bit years ago about naming a bank, “Fred’s Bank”.  That idea has stuck with me for twenty years.

How do you say:  “I’m a big bunker with racks of servers, and i can get your data to you anywhere, on any device, at any time, with complete security and reliability” in a company name that will look good on a golf shirt?
