Bill Howe from the UW eScience Institute will lead a discussion on the use of cloud computing for research and teaching — in the classroom, for shared development environments, to reduce IT costs, for hosting and scaling your website, and especially for large-scale data processing. We will provide a brief overview of the lexicon, technology, economics, and major players in cloud computing, followed by a discussion of case studies from around UW campus with Q&A.
We will be joined by representatives from Amazon and Microsoft to answer questions about their specific cloud platforms.
