Experts to plead cloud computing investigate plan
Twenty experts from around a universe are assembly in Doha currently and tomorrow to assistance map out a plan for cloud computing investigate in Qatar during a Cloud Computing Roundtable hosted by Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.
Among a member is Lord Rupert Redesdale of a UK House of Lords, who will broach a keynote residence for a roundtable.
Cloud computing uses a Internet to make computing resources — such as applications and storage — accessible to users, regardless of where they are located. Cloud computing has sold value to Qatar as a approach of giving businesses, government, and educational institutions a computing energy they need to clear their tellurian potential.
With a cloud computing model, users are means to run program programmes and store information on remote servers, instead of purchasing servers to use locally. As a result, cloud computing users are not impeded with an register of old-fashioned hardware. Instead, they have ongoing 24/7/365 entrance to modernized server technology.
“Cloud computing encourages a entrepreneur,” explains Simon Ponsford, a comparison scientist during QCRI and co-chair of a roundtable. “The pay-as-you-go indication allows a user to examination with product offerings and selling but investing a outrageous volume of income in computing hardware. If a user finds a successful model, a cloud computing infrastructure is in place to scale adult with a increasing business activity.”
Several vast companies have changed into a cloud computing space, including Amazon.com, Microsoft, and Google. However, a computing giants have not solved all a problems compared with a new technology. “There are holes in cloud computing architecture,” says Dr Mohamed Hefeeda, also a comparison scientist with QCRI and co-chair of a event. “The several cloud computing providers have solved problems in opposite ways, so there is no customary protocol. As a result, a clouds can't speak to any other, and migrating from one cloud to another is not feasible. These stipulations in a cloud infrastructure emanate opportunities for QCRI researchers to emanate technologies that accommodate a challenges. The cloud computing roundtable panelists are here to assistance QCRI brand where a gaps are so we can concentration the investigate efforts.”
Conference attendees embody member of Berkeley National Laboratory, Imperial College London, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Maryland, Aljazeera, Meeza, ictQatar, and QCRI.
