OpenCloud -- Advanced-Infrastructure-as-a-Service

Time 10/06/15 10:50AM-11:10AM

Room Grand Ballroom A

Session Abstract

The Cloud is rapidly changing the face of the Internet, building on two disruptive technologies: multi-tenant virtualized clusters and Software Defined Networks (SDN). Multi-tenant virtualized clusters enable scale-out designs with flexible resource use and good cost/performance. SDN makes it possible to both manage complexity and customize the network. These technologies are being deployed throughout the Internet; they are not limited to the data center. Network operators are migrating away from purpose-built hardware appliances and moving towards infrastructure that exploits virtualized commodity servers and SDN at the very edge of the Internet. The emergence of the cloud is impacting all IT sectors, including the Research and Education (R&E) community. This puts Internet2 at the center of the discussion of how Universities and community anchors can best take advantage of cloud technology. This session puts forward a vision for a Value-Added Cloud called OpenCloud, which we propose Internet2 build in collaboration with its member organizations.
