Three SICSA-funded PhD students at the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews, are working on a joint project involving StACC – the St Andrews Cloud Computing
Co-laboratory. According to Ali Khajeh-Hosseini, David Greenwood and James Smith, “Cloud computing represents a shift away from computing as a product that is purchased, to computing as a service that is delivered to consumers over the internet from large-scale data centres – or ‘clouds’. New cloud computing services provided by companies such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google have raised significant interest in enterprises and many organisations are questioning whether the cloud offers a better way of providing IT.” The Cloud Adoption Toolkit being developed by the three students is designed to help decision makers address this question and make better use of cloud computing.
