Grid vs Cloud Computing and Why This Should Concern the Optical Networking Community
Time and Place: Monday March 23, 2009, 8 to 11am, Room 6E at the San Diego Convention Center

Recently, there has been a lot of interests in Cloud, Grid and Utility computing and their influence in shaping the future network infrastructure. While Grid Computing is geared mainly towards scientific users and Grids, both Cloud and Utility computing are for enterprises. The common point for both approaches is their reliance on high speed optical networks to provide advanced and flexibly reconfigurable infrastructure. Optical network researchers are facing big challenges in delivering the necessary technologies for supporting Cloud, Grid and Utility computing services. Such technologies and services will change the Internet in much the same way as distributed and parallel computing has changed the computation and cyber-infrastructure today. The workshop will discuss various Cloud, Grid and Utility Computing approaches and will present the challenges (research and implementation) for our community.
