Shrisha Rao received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of
Iowa, and before that his M.S. in logic and computation from Carnegie Mellon
University. He is on the faculty at IIIT-Bangalore, a graduate school of
information technology in Bangalore, India. His research interests originate
in distributed computing, specifically algorithms and formal methods for
concurrent and distributed systems, and include solar energy and microgrids,
cloud computing, energy-aware computing ("green IT"), distributed algorithms
in sensor networks and other domains, algebraic theories of fault tolerance
and system safety, safety-critical systems, and demand-side resource

Towards a New Science of Cloud Computing

Notwithstanding the widespread hype about cloud computing, there is a lack of clarity on its prognosis, and according to some critics, even about its very nature and purpose. Even so, there is a palpable need to identify the problems and possibilities associated with cloud computing that should be addressed by academia, industry, as well as society as a whole. In particular, there are a whole slew of research issues that arise with cloud computing and call for original insights and approaches. It is perhaps not out of place to suggest that a whole new interdisciplinary science, which takes from several hitherto unconnected fields of study, needs to be created and carefully studied. In this talk, I present my own early vision of the shape that such a science of cloud computing might take.
