    2014 msu-cloud-computing 2014 msu-cloud-computing Presentation Transcript

    • Cloud computing • I use “cloud computing” to mean: – Virtual machines, – running Somewhere Else, – with configurable resources, – some of which can be made persistent. Other definition: more abstract compute resources, including disk and CPU; see e.g. picloud. This is less useful for me than VMs, because data.
    • My uses for cloud computing (Most important first) • Teaching computation & Web development. – Standardized environment, no surprises! – Teaching grants available. • Testing and benchmarking software – Completely configurable environment. – Shareable. • Reproducible papers and publishing data – “Here’s exactly what I ran, and how.” – “Here’s my data.” • Doing new science – I need 20 computers, stat! – Sharing big data sets with students.
    • Cloud computing providers We have used, in some cases extensively: • Amazon – most advanced/configurable/complex • Rackspace – seeking partners • iPlant – academic/free, but resource limited We have not used: • Google Compute Engine? • MS Azure?
