Cloud Computing

31 12 2008

I’m getting a crash course on cloud computing today… I’m moving a client’s ruby on rails site to Amazon’s Ec2.

Ec2 is useful.

My plan is to live stream all experimental data (including audio/video) to an Ec2 cloud, where it can be hosted, RSSed and analyzed. A realtime community interactive experimental workflow. I would love to post data, and have _someone else_ draw an insight from the data produced. And I’m sure it will produce lots of data, once we get rolling.

Ec2 also opens up the possibility of provisioning 10,000 servers for a day… when you really need to crunch some numbers.
