29/05/2012. CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, will outline the next stage of its Helix Nebula European cloud computing project at the Cloud Computing World Forum (www.cloudwf.com) on 12 and 13 June, with the aim of increasing participation in the scheme.
The Helix Nebula ‘Science Cloud’, was launched earlier this year to explore the use of commercial cloud computing services within European science organisations.
A number of cloud industry leaders are already involved in the project including HP, Intel, Oracle and Siemens. However, CERN is now looking for wider participation across the IT industry, in a bid to develop innovative solutions to be used by the global community working on the vast amounts of data created by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
“The Helix Nebula initiative allows CERN to evaluate cloud computing by going beyond the current-hype,” said Bob Jones, a lead on the project as Head of CERN’s openlab IT department, and keynote speaker at the Cloud Computing World Forum.
Join Ms. Aliza Knox, Managing Director of Commerce for Google APAC, to gain an insight into mobile-internet innovations and the impact upon Asia
SINGAPORE, 29 MAY 2012 – Industry giant Google, is set to join a host of industry experts and thought leaders at the Marina Bay Sands next month for the leading global event in converging broadcast and telecommunications. CommunicAsia2012 organisers have announced that Ms. Aliza Knox, Managing Director of Commerce for Google Asia Pacific, will deliver the Visionary Address on Wednesday 20 June, at the CommunicAsia2012 Summit, focusing on how ‘Asia defines the Internet’ by following the trajectory of the smartphone across Asia and how it can lead to a better understanding of the region’s current and future growth.
Until recently mobile-internet innovations in one Asian country had little impact on its immediate neighbours, which effectively meant the region was growing apart. Now that’s changing and Asia is growing together. Ms. Knox, who joined Google in 2007, has been responsible for creating a major brand presence in Singapore and for driving the company’s strategy and growth across APAC.
