Intersection of Cloud and Grid Computing

  1. 1. National Grid Seminar Series Title: Intersection of Cloud and Grid Computing Speaker: James Pang, Vice President, Product Management, Platform Computing Date: 20 January 2009 (Tuesday) Time: 1600 hours Place: Multi-purpose Hall Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore 8 Temasek Boulevard #14-00 Suntec Tower Three Singapore 038988 Abstract There is much debate raging over whether cloud computing and grid computing are one and the same. In fact, there are many similarities and one key difference separating these burgeoning fields. Both cloud and grid propose an architecture that masks the complexity of managing thousands of commodity servers from their users. Consequently, those managing a grid or cloud require specialized management tools designed for large scale implementation - making it possible to manage a large number of servers without requiring an army of administrators. In both cases, users often serve themselves and pay for their usage as a utility. The key difference, however, is in the dynamic nature of resource availability, as well as how demand for the utility is generated. This session will explore these similarities and differences and discuss the future of cloud and grid computing. Biodata James Pang has over 15 years of experience in productizing distributed computing software, specializing in large scale systems and enterprise needs. As Vice President of Product Management, James leads Platform Computing's product strategy and new product initiatives. An early developer of Platform LSF, James has held a variety of senior roles at Platform Computing from development to support to product and market management.
