What would an exhibit on cloud computing look like July 2022? Come and attend the workshop on Cloud Computing Basics at the Computer History Museum on July 27, 2012, to find out.
FREMONT, Calif., July 19 — Cloud Strategy Generation (CSG) announced today the closure of its Early Bird Registration for the Cloud Computing Workshop – which ends at 11:30 pm on July 19th 2012. "We have had an overwhelming response for our workshop in Mountain View and it shows that this new wave is just starting. There are lot of techies and non-techies alike that are looking to understand the Cloud," said Zeen Brauer, director of Public Relations at Cloud Strategy Generation.
CSG's work was inspired by Bob Singh – a multidisciplinary – (Educator, Technologist, Evangelist and Product Manager) who has created Cloud Strategy Canvas under the Creative Common License. This canvas represents factors that should be considered when adopting Cloud technologies for any project.
"My personal goal in this project is to help the world understand the technical and business aspects of Cloud computing, how Fortune 500 companies are evolving, how it will change the business as a whole," said Bob Singh, Curator at CSG. "Days when software bundles were sold at high prices are behind us. Consumer will no longer be taken to the cleaners. And above all, Computing Environments can finally start to functioning in our humanely context. With the Cloud the consumer must win – and then Fortune 500 companies would win. And yes – in the end of workshop – we will paint a picture of what new exhibit would look like at the Computer History Museum."
CSG is planning its nation's tour of vendor-neutral Cloud Computing Education for September and October when it plans to visit 14 cities hosting similar workshops.

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
