We don't have any information about cloud computing on our website at the moment. There is some out of date notes in the docs about working with Amazon Cloud (which we don't at the moment).

Do you want to put your licenses on the cloud or work with a cloud service such as Google Zync or Gridmarkets?

Now you would go to /mat or create a node called Material Network then dive into this node. then you go to the Tools menu and choose Show Tool Palette. You can use the filter at the bottom to find “classic” and from the Shaders menu, you can choose Classic Shader. This should line you up with what is in the tutorial.

Shopnets were replaced with material networks because the mat networks are VOP based and allow for layered shaders.
