It may be in reference to cloud computing.

It involves using a single master server to hold information while a seperate machine accesses that information.

For instance, the up-and-coming mobile gaming company OnLive holds the game files and computing power on a remote server, and then transmits that information to the customer when they log in to play. It allows the customer to access and play the game without having the hardware or memory space to run it.
