"Market-Oriented Cloud Computing and Big Data Applications" by Dr. Rajkumar Buyya, The University of Melbourne, Austrailia
Computing is being transformed to a model consisting of services that are commoditised and delivered in a manner similar to utilities such as water, electricity, gas, and telephony. In such a model, users access services based on their requirements without regard to where the services are hosted. Several computing paradigms have promised to deliver this utility computing vision. Cloud computing has emerged as one of the buzzwords in the IT industry and turned the vision of "computing utilities" into a reality. Several IT vendors have started offering computation, storage, and application hosting services, and provide coverage in several continents, supporting Service-Level Agreements (SLA) backed performance and uptime promises for their services. Clouds deliver infrastructure, platform, and software
(application) as services, which are made available as subscription-based services in a pay-as-you-go model to consumers. The price that Cloud Service Providers charge can vary with time and the quality of service (QoS) expectations of consumers.
This seminar/keynote presentation will cover (a) 21st century vision of
computing and identifies various IT paradigms promising to deliver the vision of computing utilities; (b) opportunities and challenges for utility and market-oriented Cloud computing, (c) innovative architecture for creating market-oriented and elastic Clouds by harnessing virtualisation technologies; (d) Aneka, a Cloud Application Platform, for rapid development of Cloud/Big Data applications and their deployment on private/public Clouds with resource
provisioning driven by SLAs; (e) experimental results on deploying Cloud and Big Data applications in engineering, gaming, and health care domains (integrating sensors networks, mobile devices), ISRO satellite image processing on elastic Clouds, and (f) directions for delivering our 21st century vision along with pathways for future research.
Dr. Rajkumar Buyya is Professor of Computer Science and Software
Engineering, Future Fellow of the Australian Research Council, and
Director of the Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS)
Laboratory at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He is also serving
as the founding CEO of Manjrasoft, a spin-off company of the University,
commercializing its innovations in Cloud Computing. He has authored over 450 publications and four text books including "Mastering Cloud Computing" published by McGraw Hill and Elsevier/Morgan Kaufmann, 2013 for Indian and international markets respectively. He also edited several books including "Cloud Computing: Principles and Paradigms" (Wiley Press, USA, Feb 2011). He is one of the highly cited authors in computer science and software engineering worldwide (h-index=80, g-index=160, 30600+ citations). Microsoft Academic Search Index ranked Dr. Buyya as the world's top author in distributed and parallel computing between 2007 and 2012. "A Scientometric Analysis of Cloud Computing Literature" by German scientists reported that Dr. Buyya is not only the world's most influential researcher, but also the most productive one in the area of cloud computing.
Software technologies for Grid and Cloud computing developed under Dr.
Buyya's leadership have gained rapid acceptance and are in use at several academic institutions and commercial enterprises in 40 countries around the world. Dr. Buyya has led the establishment and development of key community activities, including serving as foundation Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing and five IEEE/ACM conferences. These contributions and international research leadership of Dr. Buyya are recognized through the award of "2009 IEEE TCSC Medal for Excellence in Scalable Computing". Manjrasoft's Aneka Cloud technology developed under his leadership has received "2010 Asia Pacific Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award" and "2011 Telstra Innovation Challenge, People's Choice Award". He is currently serving as the foundation Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing. For further information on Dr. Buyya, please visit his cyberhome: www.buyya.com
