Building Clouds with CloudLab

Webinar Details

  • Presented by: Robert Ricci from the University of Utah
  • Date: Friday May 27th
  • Time: 3:00 p.m. ET


CloudLab is a testbed where researchers can build their own clouds, giving them control of the parts of the cloud computing stack that would be "givens" if using someone else's cloud: virtualization, storage, networking, management, etc. This enables research that seeks to transform the cloud, not just to use it as-is.

This webinar will cover the major features of CloudLab, and participants will learn how to get started using CloudLab in their own research. CloudLab is federated with GENI; GENI accounts can be used to use CloudLab, and vice versa.
