A talk on "Cloud Computing- New Ways of IT Services" was organised by the CSI-Silicon Student Branch, Silicon Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar on May 09, 2012, to spread awareness about Cloud Computing and its benefits among industry users and students.
On this occasion, Mr. Ashwini Kumar Rath, from Batoi, enlightened the audience about cloud computing in details, where IT related capabilities and resources like computation, software applications, data access, data management and storage resources are provided as services and the end user only has to have a computer and internet connection to use these services.
Apart from this the user doesn't have to worry about the purchase and maintainance of computer hardware, software and can scale the infrastructure to meet his/her unpredictable requirements. Additional resources can be allocated to the user on demand and the user has to pay for these additional resources as long as he uses these resources.
Mr. Rath further provided a brief introduction about the upcoming cloud computing platform, Batoi.
A Question & Answer session was co-ordinated by Mr. Sanjay Kumar, IIT, Kharagpur.
Mr. Sanjay Mohapatra, Chairman, Division-IV(Communications) and SBC Mr. Bimal Kumar Meher were also present. The workshop was attended by nearly 95 participants.
