Cloud@ECOOP (27 July)

Welcome to Cloud@ECOOP event page. Cloud@ECOOP will take place on 27 July, 2011.  CloudECOOP is an event where early adopters of Cloud Computing technologies and those interested in Cloud generally exchange ideas. With the rapid change occurring in the industry and academia, we need a place where we can meet to share our experiences, challenges and solutions. At CloudECOOP, you are encouraged to share your thoughts in open discussions, run (or listen to) “good practice” talks, run/view tool demos, participate in targeted problem solving sessions (e.g., work on coding up a solution for a specific problem), as we strive for the advancement of Cloud Computing. End users, IT professionals, and vendors are all encouraged to participate.

The goals and themes for this event are: getting expert opinion, answering questions and discussing issues in a fun and educational way, along with the opportunity to network with cloud users, consultants, vendors, and academics working on cutting edge issues. It is a forum where you can get your cloud questions answered in an unbiased way and meet people with real cloud experience. The content of this event is determined by the attendees themselves - people get out of CloudECOOP what they put in.


Proposed Events

Time Title Description Slides

Ahead in the Cloud

Matt Wood (Amazon)

Since 2006, Amazon Web Services have been providing on-demand, pay-as-you-use infrastructure to businesses of all sizes. This talk will introduce the cloud computing platform offered by Amazon, and discuss specific use cases - from website hosting, to running applications/games, and to enterprise-level IT.


The Impact of Cloud Computing on Scientific Research

Yehia El-khatib

The cloud computing paradigm empowers small and large enterprises by enabling them to handle big data and enhancing the manner by which integrated business operations are carried out. This has created a large interest in cloud computing from the industry. Similar interest is also witnessed from academic circles, albeit of a different scale. Some might say the scientific research community is somewhat behind the curve of adopting the cloud. In this talk, I will present a few examples of adopting the cloud from the wider research community. I will also highlight some of the aspects by which cloud computing could affect scientific research in the near future and associated challenges. No

Taking New Ideas from Research to Open Source

Ralph Mueller (Eclipse Foundation)

Open source provides an excellent vehicle for developing community, increasing diversity, and ultimately allowing your research to take on a life of its own. Moving your research into open source is easier than you might think, but still has its challenges. There are many things you need to think about: real openness and transparency requires focus; developing a community requires investment; intellectual property issues need to be managed; and more. In this talk, we present key topics that you need to think about when bringing your research into open source.

High-Availability Websites in the Cloud

Matt Wood (Amazon)

Since 2006, Amazon Web Services have been providing on demand, pay-as-you-go infrastructure via web service calls. This talk will introduce the Cloud platform offered by Amazon Web Services, and describe how to architect for high scale, high availability sites using PHP and services such as S3, SimpleDB and EC2.

15.30-16.00   Coffee Break  


Ralph Muller (Eclipse Foundation)

The Orion project's focus is creating components, services, and libraries for building web-based development tools. This includes browser client infrastructure built using widely adopted web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Also included is server-side infrastructure needed by such development tools, like infrastructure supporting file management, search, user management, preferences, generic source control, compare, file history, editors, and user interface widgets and controls required to build development tools. In this talk, we provide an overview of Orion and demonstrate its use for web-based software development, including code editing, testing, and version management.
