"observer of beautiful forms," coined by its inventor, Sir David Brewster (1781-1868), from Gk. kalos "beautiful" + eidos "shape" (see -oid) + -scope, on model of telescope, etc. Figurative meaning "constantly changing pattern" is first attested 1819 in Lord Byron, whose publisher had sent him one.

Think of "compute" as an instance of your application running in the cloud. So with 750 hours per month, you can keep a single instance running non-stop all month long. Or run 2 compute instances for two weeks a month. Or 4 for a week a piece.
