Cloud Computing Lecture

Wednesday, 13 March, 2013 - 10:00

This talk inspired by the invention of 'the Cloud', will explore what it is, where it came from and what it offers beyond storing data in near “magic” ways. Then we will explore, in more detail, the distribute and network computing as mechanisms to share data and execution of programmes (which are quite well established areas of Computer Science). We will then move into trying to understand the idea of computing as a utility that adapts to demand and see how that can bring economic and environmental benefits. This will also consider how cloud computing allows for new ways of deploying software and explore the demands that this puts on the design of software architectures and their developers. Book Now.
