Cloud Presentation at UK e-Science 2011

Well, back from vacation a little early! Today, I gave a talk at the UK e-Science 2011 Conference in York, England. The theme for this year’s meeting is Towards the Cloud: Infrastructures, Applications, Research.  I was asked if I would post my presentation on The Application of Cloud Computing To Scientific Workflows: A Study Of Cost and Performance (by Berriman, Deelman, Juve, Rynge and Volcker). The talk describes the results of a comparative study of the cost and performance of running three applications on the Amazon Cloud, and the results of processing the Kepler public data sets on commercial and academic clouds.
