Does PayPal offer cloud services

I understand that PayPal runs on cloud services; but, in essence, does that mean PayPal customers are using a cloud solution when they handle transactions. I would assume so; however, there seems to be some disagreement in my class about the matter. Any input would be appreciated.

They offer financial services and use a private cloud (OpenStack-based) to provide them.

EDIT: It would seem that Paypal uses Google's cloud. See also here. However, 18 months before the Google deal, they said that they had migrated all of their operation to OpenStack. So, what's the situation today I don't know. Perhaps OpenStack on Google Cloud servers?
