Depends on who owns the Cloud

If it's a Private Cloud it's a Private Network.

If it's a Public Cloud it's not really part of a local Network though depending on how you chose to Define what a Network is it has to be in some way considered a Network or part of a Network.

Cloud computing as a part of the network

Cloud Computing is broken into a few different areas. We provide services int he realm of (IaaS).
Infrastructure-as-a-Service is the delivery of computer systems and architecture over the Internet. It involves the use of remotely accessible computers (operating systems, databases, middleware, applications) and storage, oftentimes enabling "cloud" applications. The idea is that large, specialized players such, can operate server farms more cost efficiently than the average enterprise, so IT departments can supplement or replace their current servers with outsourced resources. This allows IT departments to scale up or scale down service levels quickly with minimal costs. We supply services to many our customers in this context. The company pays a known fixed cost for services and we spread our costs out over customers with similar needs.

In this example we are not always a part the thier network as much as we are accesible to them from their newtwork.

When there's a need for communication and connection between two machines eg : cloud server farm at the remote site and a pc, this what we called network. It comprises few important physical devices such as router, modem, firewall, storage and etc.
