Cloud Computing

Weather Forecast for January 21, Chennai: The much anticipated Cloud is headed towards CEG! Copious showers on Cloud technologies are expected during the Workshop on Cloud Computing! Be there!


The Internet has indeed become “So yesterday!!”. The Cloud is what everyone talks about now. The Cloud was a vision of the Turing award winner, John McCarthy, dating back to 1960. A technology, long forgotten, was exhumed by the big shots of the Software world, and after being neatly vacuumed, it underwent some serious overhauling and voilà! The Cloud was born. Taking the notion of what is called “Transparency” to extreme limits, the Cloud has become the personification of “offering virtually anything as a service”.


Are you piqued every time you hear about The Cloud but you didn't really manage to.. well.. lets say.. figure it out? Or are you a pro in Nimbus TP 2.2 with some major issues in virtualizing your own Guest OS? Here's your lucky chance! Come to our workshop on Cloud Computing. We'll answer all your whats, whens and hows on the Cloud. We've got everything, right from dabs of commercial cloud technologies to huge, wholesome dollops of a hands on session on how to create your own Cloud.

Its high time you figure what the Cloud is all about!
