"The best way to explain the difference between virtualisation and cloud computing is to say that the former is a technology, while the latter is a service whose foundation is formed by said technology. Virtualisation can exist without the cloud, but cloud computing cannot exist without virtualisation - at least, not in its current format. The term cloud computing then is best used to refer to a situation in which "shared computing resources, software, or data are delivered as a service and on-demand through the Internet."
There's a bit more to it than that, of course. There are a number of other factors which separate cloud computing from virtualisation, including self-service for users, broad network access, the ability to elastically scale resources, and the presence of measured service. If you're looking at what appears to be a server environment which lacks any of these features, then it's probably not cloud computing, regardless of what it claims to be.
