Keynote Speaker

  • Dr Jens Jensen (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory):

Supporting cloud research with secure infrastructures – bridging the gaps Researchers are using clouds in addition to “traditional” resources, ranging from ad-hoc computing over high throughput and performance computing to supercomputing. Yet, the security issues are either ignored (or glossed over), or they may put people off making use of resources, or entering into collaborations that would otherwise have been useful. In this presentation we look at the practical issues and the developments being researched at the moment, particularly in bridging clouds to other infrastructures, and try to see how they may be brought into the production infrastructures to address the concerns. Throughout, we take the practical approach of preferring something that will work today (or tomorrow) to the more abstract (if theoretically elegant) approaches. We also look at the trust issues, taking a look at real life (if occasionally anonymised) examples.
