Cloud Computing: On-demand compute utilities - and opportunities - in the hands of many
S. Tai
Univ. Karlsruhe, Germany


Technical challenges and business opportunities emerge as we start to leverage the Web as a combined compute platform, business platform, and collaboration platform. Cloud Computing is an important trend in this context, as it promises to provide scalable and affordable compute utilities as on-demand services, enabling a new consumer mass market. In this talk, we discuss research questions of Cloud Computing, present ongoing project work in Karlsruhe, and invite the larger community to join in this exciting research and experimentation.
