Synopsis of Speaker Topics
Steve Dine, Datasource Consulting
Cloudy with a Chance of BI:
There is a great deal of confusion over the definition of cloud computing and it’s benefits to organizations. Many analysts even feel that it has yet to live up to the hype. However, few argue about the Cloud’s potential to change the way computing resources are delivered. In this presentation, we not only discuss the different definitions of the Cloud, but also provide tangibility by walking through a step-by-step demonstration of setting up a server instance in the Amazon EC2 cloud. We also discuss the potential benefits and challenges of architecting BI solutions in the Cloud as well as present a case study of a BI project implemented entirely in the Cloud.

Illumina’s sequencing instruments can seamlessly stream data to the BaseSpace cloud (hosted on AWS) while processing data. These large datasets can then be instantly shared with other users, or further processed with tools from the BaseSpace app store. The AWS implementation ensures both security and massive scalability to meet the demands of research.
