Cloud Sites Combined With Cloud Database

I just saw this tweet:

I’m not sure what it means. Cloud Sites themselves come with their own database, so what’s different about a Cloud Site with a Cloud Database?  And if you combine those two, what’s the difference between that combination and just having a Cloud Server? What you are seeing now is served by a regular old Cloud Site, obviously a WordPress installation, aided by a free edition of CloudFlare. Most times, it’s pretty good on Pingdom, coming in at below 4 seconds load time. Every once in a while it screams at below a second, and I about have my own nerd orgasm. But what would happen if the Database were a “Cloud” Database?
