Talk by Prof. Ian Somerville (St. Andrews) to the Aberdeen branch of the BCS.
Cloud computing provides a scalable rental model for computing and storage resources accessible 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, I 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. I will discuss how cost savings on the cloud can be estimated and when it may be appropriate to move computing infrastructure to the cloud.
