Cloud computing partnership formed

Vendors get together

Hewlett-Packard, Intel and Yahoo have formed the Cloud Computing Test Bed, which they describe as a global, multi-data centre, open-source effort designed to promote research on software, datacentre management and hardware for large-scale, internet-hosted computing.

Partners in the initiative include the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the National Science Foundation and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany.

These partners, HP Labs, Intel Research and Yahoo will host six "centres of excellence", each of which will have a cloud computing infrastructure mostly based on HP hardware and Intel processors. The centres are expected to be up and running later this year.
