云计算越来越热,当然,推动云计算发展的主要原因是由于Google、微软、IBM、Yahoo等大公司有这样的强烈的需求。不过,现在由工业界发起的这场“云计算”风让研究界也动了起来。人们重新审视过去分布式系统所未解决的一些问题。

实验室即将在CIKM上举办一个云数据管理的Workshop。上网查了一下,发现clouddb的org域名居然还没有被注册掉。于是非常happy,立刻就注册了五年的域名。

过段时间,这个域名就会上线,不过现在已经能够访问了,大家有兴趣的话,可以去看看。

关于云计算发展的趋势预测,大家可以查看如下的一段观点:

Technology advances in communications, computation, and storage result in huge collections of data, capturing information of value to business, science, government, and society. Data volumes are currently growing faster than Moore’s law. Looking forward, the exponential growth is not likely to stop. The huge size of data is imposing big challenges on infrastructure for data storage which can achieve economical scaling to even more than Petabyte, massively parallel query execution, and facilities for analytical processing. Meanwhile, the rise of large data centers and cluster computers has created a new business model, cloud-based computing, where businesses and individuals can rent storage and computing capacity, rather than making the large capital investments needed to construct and provision large-scale computer installations. Cloud-based data storage and management is a rapidly expanding business. Whilst these emerging services have reduced the cost of data storage and delivery by several orders of magnitude, there is significant complexity involved in ensuring large data service can scale when needed to ensure consistent and reliable operation under peak loads. Cloud-based environment has the technical requirement to manage data center virtualization, lowers cost and boosts reliability by consolidating systems on the cloud. In addition, in an ideal world, the cloud systems should be geographically dispersed to reduce their vulnerability due to earthquakes and other catastrophes, which increase technical challenge on a great level of distributed data interoperability and mobility.
