This presentation gives an overview of the long term vision behind cloud
computing, and introduces the key issues that are currently addressed
by only a few projects that typically examine an issue in isolation but
not in the context of an overarching framework or vision. Elements and
answers that go beyond a scattergun approach are clearly lacking today.
This study seeks to match two disruptive innovations to each other: The
vision and the requirements of cloud computing platforms. The
multi-core challenge that has emerged since approximately 2007. The
study investigates whether existing functional programming languages
could be the right glue to bind these two innovations together, and
thereby create a framework for future cloud computing platforms in a
concurrent multi-core world.
