The Future of Cloud Computing at NASA (Bayview B)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

NASA, Karen Petraska, Service Executive for the NASA Computer Services Office, and Ray O Brien, CTO for IT at NASA Ames Research Center, will jointly cover how the Agency’s very early step into cloud computing via the Nebula project and OpenStack has influenced the Agency’s view of how this exciting new computing model can be leveraged to help meet mission objectives. Karen and Ray will cover a range of activities directed at increasing the adoption of cloud computing across the Agency. Specifically, an activity targeted at enhancing OpenStack for science applications and workloads will be covered, along with a project that NASA has just started to ensure public cloud services are used securely by projects teams. Other cloud activities within NASA will likely be covered too.  Additionally, Ray O'Brien will address how Nebula and OpenStack are paving the way for greater involvement by NASA in community-driven open source projects.
