Using one Cloud for Cloud computing today? Perhaps two Clouds? In the future there will be MultiClouds. An interview with Dana Petcu of the West University of Timisoara
2 Sep 2013 Almere -
Dana Petcu is an expert in Cloud computing, especially when it comes to complex Clouds and MultiClouds. After her presentation at the Cloud Summerschool 2013 in Almere, Primeur magazine had a chance to talk to Dana in a video interview. The main topic of the interview is MultiClouds. This is where a suer, with the help of a broker or other assistance can access multiple Clouds at the same time. Researchers are already working on this topic since the beginning of Cloud computing, as they realised that at one point in time the use of multiple Clouds would become inevitable. Industry started to show interest in 2010.
Dana Petcu is very active in European Cloud research projects. One was Mosaic: http://mosaic-cloud.eu and currently she is active in MODAClouds: http://modaclouds.eu
MODAClouds started last Autumn and has as main goal the marriage between modal driven approach and Clouds. According to Dana Petcu, the project will have its first results this Autumn.
The video interview took place on July 26, 2013 following the Almere Cloud Summerschool 2013.
