Cloud Research Cloud Computing

In October 2007, Google and IBM announced a collaboration with major universities30 the University of Washington (UW), Carnegie-Mellon University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Maryland to further the development of cloud computing technology. More recently, IBM announced that Italy’s University of Bari is working to improve supply management of local businesses, including fisherman, winemakers, and trucking companies by helping them determine product demand, shipping preparations, and other actions on handheld devices. The university is creating realtime scenarios using end-user devices, sensors, analytics software, and power from a mainframe.

Also, IBM announced a research partnership with the University of Missouri. The University is a recipient of a Shared University Research (SUR) Award from IBM, consisting of high performance computing technologies to advance the school’s bioinformative research with the goal of developing a first-of-a-kind cloud computing environment for genomics research collaboration at a regional level. Joining the genomic cloud could make possible large-scale sharing and collaborative scientific discovery in a wide range of fields.

Not to be outdone, HP, Intel, and Yahoo jumped on the bandwagon and are teaming up with some lesser ranked groups, the most prominent of whom are the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany.
