Professor Ian Somerville from the University of St Andrews will be presenting a Computing talk on Wednesday 30th October in Rooms N106 & N107 Riverside East at 18:30.
MOVING TO THE CLOUD – Opportunities and Risks.
Cloud computing provides a scalable rental model for computing and storage resources accessable using Internet technologies. It is widely seen as the next stage in the evolution of computing support and offers the opportunity for (some) companies to make substantial savings on their hardware costs. In this talk, Ian will discuss some of the benefits and risks of moving both software development and application software to the cloud, including issues of security, compliance and support.
Ian will also discuss how cost savings on the cloud can be estimated and when it may be appropriate to move computing infrastructure to the cloud.
The event is free for all computing students and members to attend.
