Description

Cloud computing seems to be everywhere. IBM is going to “Build a Better Planet” with it, CISCO allows us to “Cloud with Confidence,” Google offers “Cloud Connect” and even Amazon offers the “Elastic Compute Cloud.” However, with so many options and so much hype, it almost feels like the promise is more tangible than the reality. The obvious question for any legitimate engineer is, “so what!” If the “cloud” really is the future of computing, how will it change our business? In other words, what difference will it make to the field of water resources? This presentation will present a basic introduction to Cloud Computing by discussing topics such as Utility Computing, Grid Computing, High-Performance Computing, Virtual Machines, Grid Security, Service-Level-Architecture (SLA) and on-demand computing. Specific emphasis will focus on answering the “so what” questions regarding this changing computing paradigm and the business of water resources.
