About The Cloud Computing Village

(image from Wikipedia)

Cloud Computing is an enabling technology that essentially relies on distributed data stores and networks to allow data storage across distributed containers. There are many pros and cons to consider, a world of approaches and uses to discuss. We'll talk about them here in the Cloud Computing Village. Join us!

Orlando Workshop on December 15, 2011

Title: understanding cloud-enabled modular middleware

 

WSO2 Carbon and Stratos provides a complete middleware platform for Enterprise computing: from on-premise to a full cloud-enabled runtime. In this session we will spend the morning looking at the Carbon platform – including leading ESB, AppServer, Governance Registry and more. In the afternoon we will look at the way this runtime is also available in a multi-tenant scalable, elastic architecture. This session will cover SOA and Cloud middleware, PaaS as well as digging deep into Cloud concepts.
This hands-on workshop provides a real opportunity to understand Carbon, OSGi middleware, PaaS, Stratos, and get going with a Cloud Platform. StratosLive is a complete running platform in the cloud, and participants will be encouraged to set up a tenant using their laptops during the workshop, and will understand how to install and use Stratos in a Private PaaS environment.

HowStuffWorks "How Cloud Computing Works"

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest...
