Prof. Parashar interviewed by International Science Grid This Week

Can Clouds Transform Science ?

Prof. Parashar is interviewed by Wolfgang Gentzsch from International Science Grid This Week.

An excerpt from the interview:

Manish, computational and data-enabled science and engineering (CDS&E) has traditionally used dedicated platforms and specialized high-end systems – why should clouds be considered for them?

Clouds are already having a significant impact by enabling enterprises to outsource IT on demand. Clouds enable the outsourcing of many of the tedious aspects of research, such as deploying, configuring, and managing infrastructure, and thus enable scientists to focus on science.

Cloud services improve productivity, facilitate the sharing of research results, and enable the reproducibility of associated computations. This has democratized access to computational and data resources for researchers who don’t have adequate local infrastructure.
