IBM and Google disclosed on an initiative the two technology heavyweights hope will help computer science students and researchers learn more about and gain experience in what has come to be known as “cloud computing.” Ultimately, the goal is to create a new generation of software developers able to write software that will fully take advantage of the capabilities of parallel computing.”This project combines IBM’s historic strengths in scientific, business and secure-transaction computing with Google’s complementary expertise in Web computing and massively scaled clusters,” said Samuel J. Palmisano, chairman, president and CEO of IBM. “We’re aiming to train tomorrow’s programmers to write software that can support a tidal wave of global Web growth and trillions of secure transactions every day.”Google is “excited to partner with IBM to provide resources which will better equip students and researchers to address today’s developing computational challenges,” said the company’s CEO Eric Schmidt. The training, according to Schmidt, is an imperative to ensure that students are equipped to “harness the potential of modern computing systems” and provide a way for researchers to “innovate ways to address emerging problems.” The project is no luxury, but a necessity, he continued, that will enable Google to “most effectively… Read full this story
