department thought that by attaching that buzzword to it, that would
increase sales? :)

Nevermind that clouds contain nothing but vapor.....

The vss is virtual management software for a virtual switch.  This box 
looks like a piece of hardware that you can plug things into, so I'm
wondering what makes this a cloud switch and some other piece of kit not
cloud switch.
