Keynote: Data Laden Clouds (Slides)

Today we are seeing the rise of cloud data centers and infrastructure at scale exceeding anything previously contemplated in high-performance computing. These cloud data centers contain hundreds of thousands of cores and several petabytes of data, and are superficially similar to high performance computing systems.  However, cloud architectures and software differ from those used for high performance computing in some important ways. What are the software structures and capabilities that best exploit cloud capabilities and economics while providing application compatibility and continuity?  How do we best balance ease of use and performance for research computing? What are the appropriate roles of public clouds relative to local computing systems, private clouds and grids?  And in a world where massive amounts of experimental and computational data are produced daily, how do we best extract insights from this data via clouds?  This talk will examine these and other issues from a technical perspective.
