Argonne Hosts Workshop on Resource Intensive Open Clouds

Over at the Internet2 Blog, Todd Sedmak writes that Argonne National Labs hosted a one-day workshop last week to surface unmet needs for Open Cloud research and identify current and near-term solutions.

Through an open and thoughtful exchange, participants developed a shared understanding and vision of how open computing solutions can best support existing and emerging uses in a range of research disciplines. Workshop goals included incubating technical community; reaching consensus on a gap analysis (needs vs. current capabilities); and developing focused roadmap feedback for vendors. Some more specific short-term technical foci include: drivers for virtualization (or lighter-weight virtualization); cloud resource management and scheduler; and a platform for intensive applications.
