Title Cloud and Web 2.0 Services for Supporting Research
Abstract "Cloud computing'' can be defined as the flexible provision of computing power, applications, and data storage by a networked pool of hardware resources. In cloud computing, such resources are delivered to users as services. In this report we present a discussion and analysis of the availablility and uses of cloud services for supporting research. This includes things like e-Mail, Web hosting and data storage for research led organisations, in addition to running applications. Much of the subsequent discussion focusses on issues that should be considered before engaging a cloud service provider. Whilst ``public cloud'' services like Amazon EC2 have been widely discussed, there is now a growing interest in ``private or partner clouds'' which enable more control and re-use of existing skills and resources but nevertheless providing many of the same business advantages.
