CERN Computing Colloquium | Hidden in the Clouds: New Ideas in Cloud Computing | 30 May

by Dr. Shevek (NEBULA)

Thursday 30 May 2013 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
at CERN ( 40-S2-D01 - Salle Dirac )

Abstract: Cloud computing has become a hot topic. But 'cloud' is no newer in 2013 than MapReduce was in 2005: We've been doing both for years. So why is cloud more relevant today than it ever has been?

In this presentation, we will introduce the (current) central thesis of cloud computing, and explore how and why (or even whether) the concept has evolved.

While we will cover a little light background, our primary focus will be on the consequences, corollaries and techniques introduced by some of the leading cloud developers and organizations.

We each have a different deployment model, different applications and workloads, and many of us are still learning to efficiently exploit the platform services offered by a modern implementation. The discussion will offer the opportunity to share these experiences and help us all to realize the benefits of cloud computing to the fullest degree.

Please bring questions and opinions, and be ready to share both!
