Bhubaneswar: The “Eastern Regional Conference and Student Convention on Cloud Computing” is an effort by C.V. Raman College of Engineering and Computer Society of India to spread awareness about latest technology in Cloud Computing and it’s benifits among industry users, academicians, professionals and students.
The conference is a joint effort of the CSI student branch in C.V. Raman College of Engineering, the CSI Cuttack chapter, the CSI Region IV and CSI division IV (Communication).
The “Cloud Computing” is a natural evolution of distributed computing. In this type of computing the end user is required to have a computer and internet connection to use his cloud service. Here IT related capabilities and resources are provided as services. We can compare this technology with consumption of electricity. Electricity is available on the grid and an user pays electricity bill as per his own consumption. In the same way a Cloud Service User pays as per his usage.
Cloud Computing Service provides services like computation, software applications, data access, data management and storage resources. Here the user of this service don’t have to worry about the purchase and maintainance of computer hardware, software. Another adavantage is the scalable infrastructure to meet fluctuating and unpredictable business requirement. The user can be allocated additional resources on demand. The user has to pay for these additional resources as long as he needs these resources.
This type of computing solution reduces the IT bill of the company and the headeche on maintaining the system. In other words companies get more time to concentrate on their business and not on IT support services.
Experts from Academic institutes, Product industries, IT service consultancy and Service providers are attending and giving lectures on different aspects of Cloud Computing. The Chief Guest Dr. Patnaik, Honorary professor from IISC, Bangalore spoke on Distributed Computing System which is the foundation of Cloud Computing, Mr. Sushant Panda MD Syum Technology, Mumbai spoke on how students need to prepare themselves for these types of new technology adaption. Mr. Sanjib Rout, Chairman C.V. Raman Group of Institutions, Prof Dr. K.C. Patra, Principal, Mr. Sanjay Mohapatra, Regional Vice President Computer Society of India and Prof Dr. R Mishra, C.V. Raman College of Engineering and Convener of the conference addressed the delegates.
Senior Technical executives from IBM, VMWare, Microsoft spoke on Cloud Computing concepts, Products and Tools for Realizing the Cloud infrastructure using the concept of Virtualization and Clustering, Azure Cloud Platform, Security and Monitoring tools of Cloud Enviroment.
Cloud implementation experts like Mahindra Satyam, Infosis, ADII Research, TCS discussed on real life cases about cloud prioritization models for benifit maximization, content management on cloud, the IT impact, Sensor web and device clouds and Mobile Applications of Cloud Technology.
A tutorial on Amazon Enterprise Cloud Enterprise Cloud Services (EC2) and the Google Apps Engine (GAE) will be discussed by corporate training experts from Springboard.com and VTech by demonstrating case studies and showing their actual use of EC2 and GAE.
On third and final day of the conference a group of IIT Mumbai people will discuss on the use of Python programming language for developing high performance applications on parallel and Distributed Environment. Some of the delegates will also present their research papers on the field of cloud computing.
