Speaker : RANDY L. BIAS, CEO, FOUNDER & CLOUD STRATEGISTData:June 23 (Wednesday)

5:00pm~7:00pmLocation : Science Library 611 ICP lecture room, Korea

UniversityAbstract:How did a bookseller (Amazon), a search engine (Google), and a web

portal (Yahoo!) pioneer cloud computing? We''ll discuss how cloud computing is the

technological, architectural, and operational underpinnings of how cloud-scale

systems are built,why ''cloud computing'' is what powers ''cloud'', and how these new

computing principles will eventually displace client-server and mainframe computing.

In the process, we''ll also come to understand that ''cloud computing'' and ''cloud''

are related, but not the same, how the space is evolving quickly,and why cloud

computing is fundamentally a disruptive change,as in Clayton Christen''s Innovator''s

Dilemma.We are now experiencing a change so large that the client-server computing

titans of today will be like the mainframe titans of yesterday.Bio:Randy is the
