It is the first day of the Open Cirrus Summit in Pittsburgh, PA, and the three founding partners of Open Cirrus --- HP, Intel and Yahoo! – have announced that China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI), the Supercomputing Center of Galicia (CESGA), China Telecom Corporation and Georgia Tech University’s Center for Experimental Research in Computer Systems (CERCS) have become the latest to join this global cloud computing research initiative.
Open Cirrus simulates a real-life, global, Internet-scale environment and gives researchers the ability to test and measure application and service performance built to run on large-scale cloud systems. Since its launch in 2008, fourteen organizations have joined Open Cirrus, and more than 80 research projects have been launched.
