Online talk: What’s With All the Cloud Talk?

June 4, 2010 at 2:00pm – 3:00pm Central

Title:   What’s with all the Cloud talk?
Abstract What’s the topic of today?  Cloud computing.  Everyone’s talking about it and showing that that thing they did last year or are announcing today is “Cloud Computing.”  Cloud is wonderful because it’s white and fluffy and like a rainbow, far off and mathematically pure.  Fog is in your face and around you and has all the dirty bits embedded in it.  We’ll talk about what that means to the architect as the Cloud space evolves into Fog space.  How do we scale up as our smart grid can deliver more power to us?  Scale down as processing units become unavailable due to bandwidth or contention or even just batteries running out.
