Set up in March 2008, the Dublin Cloud Center was created by IBM Software Group to provide a real-life laboratory for IBM Cloud Computing. Since then the Dublin Center has engaged around the world in delivery, development and research on the Cloud. A broad range of IBM, Client & Research projects provide a real-life insight into IBM 'Smart Infrastructure' in action.
Pol will provide a range of experiences and insights into Cloud Computing – from a practitioner's perspective. In this respect, Pol brings a unique, 'hands-on' perspective to IBM Cloud Computing capability and how it is being used in 'the wild'. This workshop is an opportunity for discussion and debate at a deep, paractical & technical level that will compliment the other workshops. The intention of the workshop is to illustrate IBM Cloud Computing in action!
In addition, Pol will also discuss emerging technologies using the Cloud platform and architecture in research and development projects in the Dublin Center. An interesting range of projects from High-performance, Pervasive & Mobile Computing coupled with research into topics such as active energy & green computing in the Cloud will provide insights into some of the next generation of solutions to use Cloud Computing.
