Session Description (include details of proposed agenda, potential speakers and expected outcomes)
The session will include invited talks from efforts aimed at exploring the integration of cloud technologies and services, especially virtualisation, into existing Grid Infrastructures.
There is a lot of interest in exploring the use of cloud provisioning models and virtualization technologies within Grid infrastructures. Cloud providers of elastic capacity could be used to scale-out a Grid site in order to meet fluctuating demands or to fast provision a virtualized Grid site. Equally, virtualization technologies provide several benefits for Grid site maintenance, operation and use, such as reduction of gridification cycles, fault tolerance, easier middleware deployment, performance partitioning, or easy support for different VOs.
Please indicate your preferred day to give a demo.
