Tech/Engineering - IT (Information Technology) / cloud computing
English term or phrase: extrapolated
Step 3: Differentiate the cloud from other technologies
The cloud has to compete with virtualization software and strategies. Cloud computing can be inclusive of virtualization, but they can also be implemented and ***extrapolated*** as two different processes. Both help to deliver optimized resources, scalability and on-demand utilization, but virtualization can be maintained and managed completely within a company's own enterprise firewall. Does such competition hinder the cloud's growth?
嫌“推断”很别扭。

You can also replace 'extrapolated' with 'scaled up', i.e. "... implemented and scaled up as two different processes ....".
Hope this helps.

agree  Thinkcell Wang: yes, it could be replaced roughly with "extend", though it is not very accurate.

  -> Thanks for your agreement. Yeah, it's not very accurate, but this is the meaning that the author was trying to convey. Sometimes, people do not write with perfect choices of words, so we have to read between the lines and paraphrase. :(
