Cloud Computing Fundamentals

Apr 28

The topic for my research paper in Management Information Systems was cloud computing. Naturally I have a deep understanding of many cloud computing technologies, but it was good to review the nomenclature used in academic research. I gained some sophistication in segmenting the cloud computing space and differentiating it from grid computing and other infrastructure models. However, on the whole, cloud computing isn’t that different from traditional computing (I have to call it something). When comparing it to the advent of other technologies which are now common place, it has followed a similar trajectory. I can see a future where compute resources take on a boutique style differentiation model where consumption of cloud technology appeals to consumer preference as much as consumer need.

Here’s a presentation I put together that summarizes my research.
