Explore and consider how breakthroughs in memory, compute, and interconnection devices and subsystems can affect your scalable, data-centric, high-performance cloud computing system design and how you can leverage them to transition between compute-centric and the more balanced data-centric compute architectures. Dr. Sam Siewert shows you how to include co-processing, nonvolatile memory, interconnection, and storage components.
Availability: Cloud scaling with HPC on demand. Take an in-depth look at how to build a compute node and small cluster app that can scale with on-demand HPC by leveraging the cloud.
Storage: Integrate Ceph storage clusters within OpenStack. Discover how an open source Ceph storage cluster can be integrated with your cloud data architectures and models.
Data: Balance availability policy with numerical performance data. Beat the complexity of providing multiple variable availability policies by using numerical analysis of performance data.
Mobile: Build a security policy for a BYOD cloud. Learn how to protect corporate assets with a security policy for a cloud-based BYOD environment.
The adoption of mobile and social technology mixed with cloud computing, is changing how business interacts with customers; Project Icap is at the crossroads of these innovations. Project Icap is a technology preview, a trial platform for developing mobile apps and cloud services that includes integrated tools and runtimes, open services, and cloud deployment features. It makes a wonderful companion to the Mobile Cloud Services early release program that helps you develop easily consumed mobile apps.
