Center of IP-based Services Innovation (CIPSI)

“Cloud” is a common metaphor for an Internet-accessible infrastructure (e.g. data storage and computing hardware) which is hidden from users. Cloud Computing makes data truly mobile, allowing a user to simply access a chosen cloud with any Internet-accessible device. In Cloud Computing, IT-related capabilities are provided as services, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology. Thus, many mature technologies are used as components in Cloud Computing, but still there are many unresolved and open problems. The Cloud Computing Association aims to bring together researchers who work on cloud computing and related technologies. This presentation will give an overview of cloud computing and discuss several contemporary applications.
