Event Cloud Computing – IBM Turning Data Centers Into ‘Computing Cloud’
I predict we may experience less debates on the use of the term “event cloud” related to CEP in the future, now that both IBM and Google have made announcements about “cloud computing” and “computing cloud”, IBM Turning Data Centers Into ‘Computing Cloud’
“The initiative also builds on IBM’s announcement with Google last month that they are developing cloud computing environments for academic use. But today’s announcement is aimed more widely at corporations and government users that want the extreme scale made possibly by lashing together pools of computers.”
This also furthers the notion and architecture we have been advocating, that event processing will move toward a distributed, cooperative computing model..
