  • Before the electrical grid, each facility had to generate its own electricity. Advances in the generation of power were matched by advances in its transmission, its infrastructure if you will. This required the construction of “millwork,” assemblies of gears, shafts, belts and pulleys for transmitting and regulating power.As factories expanded and production processes became more involved, millwork in turn grew elaborate. Factory owners had to hire architects to design the systems and skilled technicians to maintain them.Early adopters had a real competitive cost and agility advantage. Could you imagine building a factory today with its own dynamo?

  • Data/information is inter-connected through machine-interpretable information (e.g. paper X is about star Y)
    Social networks are a special case of ‘data meshes’
    A knowledge ecosystem:

    The Microsoft Technical Computing mission to reduce time to scientific insights is exemplified by the June 13, 2007 release of a set of four free software tools designed to advance AIDS vaccine research. The code for the tools is available now via CodePlex, an online portal created by Microsoft in 2006 to foster collaborative software development projects and host shared source code. Microsoft researchers hope that the tools will help the worldwide scientific community take new strides toward an AIDS vaccine. See more.

  • A “Smart” Cyberinfrastructure for Research”

  • This has happened before…
    • Utility computing [infrastructure/IaaS]
    Provide a data center and a way to host client VMs and data.
    Developers, not end-users, are the target of this kind of cloud computing.
    • Platform as a Service [platform/PaaS]
    Provide a programming environment to build a cloud application
    The cloud deploys and manages the app for the client
    • End-user applications [software/SaaS]
    Delivery of software from the cloud to the desktop
    Any web application is a cloud application in the sense that it resides in the cloud. Google, Amazon, Facebook, twitter, flickr, and virtually every other Web 2.0 application is a cloud application in this sense.
    Types of Cloud Computing

    • Extend existing on-premises applications via selective use of services
    • Typical scenario is focused on data
    • Distribute some existing workloads to the cloud
    • Typical scenario involves deploying code to cloud infrastructure
    • Create new scenarios by composing from multiple services & integrating on-premises assets
  • Zentity Cloud Storage

    “The impact of Jim Gray’s thinking is continuing to get people to think in a new way about how data and software are redefining what it means to do science."
    — Bill Gates, Chairman, Microsoft Corporation
    “One of the greatest challenges for 21st-century science is how we respond to this new era of data-intensive science. This is recognized as a new paradigm beyond experimental and theoretical research and computer simulations of natural phenomena—one that requires new tools, techniques, and ways of working.”
    — Douglas Kell, University of Manchester
    “The contributing authors in this volume have done an extraordinary job of helping to refine an understanding of this new paradigm from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.”
    — Gordon Bell, Microsoft Research
