Topic: Cloud Computing: Transforming the Present Synopsis: Maturity and convergence of technologies including virtualisation and Service Oriented Architecture along with the emergence of large and medium sized data-centers powered with cheap but powerful intra-network connectivity and are connected to the outside world with relatively fast Internet paved way to Cloud Computing. The 5-4-3 model gives an understanding of Cloud Computing characteristics and classifications based on deployment and service models. An interesting question to be asked is whether High Performance Computing in possible in the Cloud. Research at the Australian National University shows that Cloud infrastructure can provide properties similar to HPC facilities and can be harnessed even on mobile devices over the Internet. This will have very positive implications for the future of Cloud Computing as we move towards Internet of Things.
