Florida International University Florida International University (FIU) researchers are leveraging cloud computing, using a National Science

Foundation (NSF) grant on the Google/IBM Cloud, to analyze aerial images and objects to help support disaster mitigation and environmental protection. Indexing Geospatial Data with MapReduce :Florida International University (FIU) researchers are leveraging cloud computing to analyze aerial images and objects to help support disaster mitigation and environmental protection. Specifically, the CLuE effort at FIU relates to its TerraFly project, which is a web-service of 40 terabytes of aerial imagery, geospatial queries and local data. Students and researchers will now be able to precisely code these images in real-time. Indiana University The researchers at Indiana University are working on several cloud computing projects with grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Health (NIH). Boston University Towards a Marketplace for Colocation of Cloud Services :Research work on "Colocation Games" (CGs), its an economic framework upon which emerging cloud architectures could be implemented. Funded by National Science Foundation (NSF). It introduces Colocation Games as the basis of a general framework for modeling, analyzing, and facilitating the interactions between the various stakeholders in distributed/cloud computing environments, where resources are offered in an open marketplace to independent, rational parties interested in setting up their own applications. Researcher: Azer Bestavros University of Virginia Image Super-Resolution Using Trillions of Examples :Imagine continuously zooming into an image from your personal photo collection. Unlike the modern image processing software, however, this zoom operation would reveal details missing from the original image. Foe example, zooming into

longitudinal query and visualization of massive ocean simulation results at interactive speeds. The foundation of the approach is to wrap an eScience application in a performance container framework and dynamically regulate the application's performance through the application of formal feedback control theory. Feedback-Controlled Management of Virtualized Resources for Predictable eScience :This project pursues a novel unified framework to ensure predictable eScience based on these two dominant emerging uses of virtualized resources. The application's progress is monitored and ensured such that the job meets its performance goals without requiring exclusive access to physical resources even in the presence of a wide class of unexpected disturbances. A research team at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia plans to develop techniques for intelligently enlarging a digital image that uses a database of millions of on-line images to find examples of what its components look like at a higher spatial resolution. in which applications in the cloud are regulated to provide predictable performance. Researchers: Sang-Min Park Marty Humphrey University of Washington The team at the University of Washington is working with the University of Utah on building a new infrastructure for computational oceanography that uses the Google/IBM cloud to allow ad hoc. This project extends this foundation and early results in three important dimensions: creating support for non-specialists to use the framework.someone's shirt would eventually show a high-resolution image of the threads that compose it. implementing these techniques in Eucalyptus. and applying the techniques to softwareas-a-Service (SaaS). one of the major open-source cloud computing frameworks. .
