“Cloud computing is the next big thing in the field of applied science. It is offering solutions for a wide range of problems from international policy making and governance to traffic problems and ordering food from eateries,” Rajkumar Buyya, head of the cloud computing and design systems laboratory, University of Melbourne, Australia, said here on Saturday.

He was delivering the keynote address at a national-level workshop in Karnataka College.

He gave examples of several cloud computing tools were helping governments shape and implement policies and programmes. They are also helping individuals communicate with each other more efficiently at lower costs, he said.

Prof. Buyya said that the most interesting thing about cloud computing was that it had opened up several new avenues for large tasks like big data analysis by using basic level of computing devices like mobile phones.

S.V. Juja, principal, said that he had developed a cloud computing application called ‘Aneka’, that was being used by several public and private agencies around the world.
