The Virtuous Competition in Cloud Computing Research

Yahoo, Hewlett-Packard and Intel announced a research venture on Tuesday that spans the United States, Germany and Singapore. The goal is to advance Internet-scale computing — the proverbial “cloud,” in which more computing chores are delivered to personal computers and cellphones as services, with the heavy computational lifting done remotely in large data centers.

Google and IBM announced a big cloud research initiative last fall, pledging to build two large data centers that would be at the disposal of six universities initially: Carnegie Mellon, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, the University of Washington, the University of Maryland and the University of California at Berkeley.
