5th Cloud Expo in New York This April To most who watch the cloud computing space telling you that there is an incredible amount of interest in Cloud Computing is rather obvious. Often times you'll hear me talking about the opportunities from the pacific rim nations or the other various emerging economies around the globe. So the fact that interest in cloud computing is exploding in India shouldn't come as a surprise, or should it? India is an interesting place for technology, it's a country that has a population just slightly smaller than that of China making it the second-most populous country with approximately 1.17 billion people (estimate for July, 2009 according to wikipedia). Statically the country consists of more than one-sixth of the world's population and has more than two thousand ethnic groups. Or to put it another way, India occupies 2.4% of the world'... (more)

Introducing Semantic Cloud Abstraction & The UCI Working Group

The CCIF and its members have recently focused on creating a common cloud taxonomy and ontology. I find it's starting to sound a lot like semantics, Cloud Semantics. We are in a sense defining what cloud computing is by describing its "components" and their relationships to one another. One that is capable of expressing cloud computing and its subsequent parts in terms of a consensus data model. So in this effort we may actually be defining a dynamic computing model that can, under certain conditions, be 'trained' to appropriately 'learn' the meaning of related cloud & infrastruc... (more)

Navigating the Fog - Billing, Metering & Measuring the Cloud

It's that dreaded time of the month again, the time of the month that we, the 400,000+ Amazon Web Service consumers await with great anticipation / horror. What I'm talking about is the Amazon Web Services Billing Statement sent at beginning of each month. A surprise every time. In honor of this monthly event, I thought I'd take a minute to discuss some of the hurdles as well as opportunities for Billing, Metering & Measuring the Cloud. I keep hearing that one of the biggest issues facing IaaS users currently is a lack of insight into costing, billing and metering. The AWS costing ... (more)

NASA's NEBULA Space Cloud Computing Platform Launches

Earlier this week NASA took the wraps off a new Cloud Computing platform called NEBULA, or what I'm calling the (Space Cloud). Described as a way to manage research-class computing capacity. NASA describes NEBULA as "a Cloud Computing environment integrating a set of open-source components into a seamless, self-service platform." I found the location of the Space Cloud particularly interesting, The primary NEBULA data center is at Ames Research Center, in the Ames Internet Exchange (AIX). AIX was formerly "Mae West", one of the original nodes of the Internet, and is still a major... (more)
