Talk title: Future generation of computational infrastructures and the role of cloud computing
TUESDAY 26/1 at 13.15 in ITC 1113
Abstract: In this talk I will give a brief overview of the state of the art cloud technology and examine the architecture and deployment strategies of cloud based infrastructure. After the overview, I will present three example cases based on our research at the University of Helsinki. The first case pertains to cloud based analytics for smartphone energy optimisation and debugging. The second case presents a secure cloud based scientific cloud for High Energy Physics. The third case pertains to the 4G and 5G cellular networks, in which cloud is becoming a key infrastructure component. I will summarize the key findings at the end of the talk and discuss future cloud based systems.
