Transformation Infrastructure

By pwsadmin | September 26, 2020

Hybrid IT enables a composable infrastructure which describes a framework whose physical compute, storage, and network fabric resources are treated as services. Resources are logically pooled so that administrators need to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application, which describes the function of a composable architecture. This type of transformative infrastructure is foundational…

Now customers want increasingly specialized product variations in less time and of higher quality. Meeting this demand for increased product variation can seriously impact the bottom line. Such variability increases…

Real-Time Analytics Power the Roadway of the Future

By pwsadmin | July 25, 2020

By Kevin L. Jackson The complexities of citywide traffic are pushing the limits of existing transportation management systems. Outdated infrastructure is based on proprietary, single-purpose subsystems, making it costly to acquire, operate, and maintain. And current roadways are simply not prepared for the future of autonomous vehicles. Enter the SPaT Challenge, an initiative encouraging cities and…

Recent examples of this dangerous state of affairs include[1]: A data breach of a US Customs and Border Protection surveillance contractor that led to…

Today I am proud and honored to announce that I will be participating in this year’s 3rd Annual World Congress of Cloud Computing 2014! Highlighting the theme of “Chinese Dream in Cloud” the event will be held in Dalian, China from June 19 to 21, 2014.

CloudCon-2014 aims to strengthen the technical and business ties in cloud computing area, to bring
together experts and industry leaders to share technological advancements and business
experiences, and to jointly explore opportunities in emerging technologies. This congress provides an ideal platform for industrial practitioners and academia to keep up to date with current technology trends, interact with industry experts and network with peers. CloudCon-2014 is presenting an ambitious and unique program based around major themes “Chinese Dream In Cloud”, and will feature an exciting line-up of keynote speakers and intense breakout sessions, where lively and interactive debates will take place among the delegates. The newly launched sectors are Parallel Thematic Forums, Frontier Technological Program, and IT/ICT Business Matchmaking and Career Fairs.

Representing the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium, I will be presenting “Cloud Service Brokerage for International Disaster Response” on Saturday, June 21, 2014 at 2:00pm.

Recent high-profile events (2010 Haitian Earthquake, 2011 Tōhoku Earthquake and Tsunami, 2013 Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda) have highlighted the importance played by the international community in humanitarian assistance and disaster response. These events have also showcased the critical importance of quickly providing robust information technology resources to response effort participants. In June 2010, in support its continuing effort to foster international collaboration, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) initiated a dialog with the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC) to discuss this and other aspects of geospatial data information-sharing across the international community. In response to this request the NCOIC through the use of a cloud services brokerage paradigm, built and demonstrated a federated cloud computing infrastructure capable of managing the electronic exchange of geospatial data. The effort also led to the development of the more generalized NCOIC Rapid Response Capability Pattern (NRRC), a process which could improve the effectiveness and reduce the cost of emergency situations that require an international joint civilian/military response. This presentation will cover the organizational, technical and operational aspects of building and deploying a federated cloud computing platform. It will also present lessons learned and recommendations for the use of this approach in international humanitarian assistance and disaster response scenarios.


Many thanks to the Organizing Committee of CloudCon-2014 for giving me the opportunity to participate in this prestigious event. I would also like to give thanks the hosting organizations which include:

  • Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China;
  • Ministry of Industry and Information Technologyof the People’s Republic of China;
  • Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China;
  • Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China;
  • China Council for the Promotion of International Trade;
  • Liaoning Provincial People’s Government; and
  • China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Dalian Sub-Council.
