Cloud Computing in Scientific Discovery for the Industry

Presented by Dr. Boris HORVAT
Type: Oral presentation


Cloud computing is fundamentally changing how computing resources are being delivered. The end-users increasingly access cloud-based applications using remote web-services, standard web browsers or “native applications” that just pretend to be more than a web browser. Infrastructure, databases and software are being deployed in a way that can be used as a service (rented) when needed. At the same time, cloud computing challenges several research fields with problems arising from topics such as: privacy and security, standards, resource sharing, scalability, distributed file systems, computational and data-intensive requirements (e.g. big data, big networks, parallelization, visualization), interoperability, accountability etc. In this presentation, several results of Competence center CLoud ASsisted Services (KC CLASS) will be presented with emphasis on industrial problems arising from the following topics: logistics, economy, health, environment and education.
