IBM pushes cloud research in Poland

By

IBM is partnering with the Wroclaw University of Technology to establish a university cloud computing centre.


An agreement between IBM and Poland's Wroclaw University of Technology will see the creation of the country's first university cloud computing centre.

The deal is part of IBM's global multipurpose cloud computing centre initiative, which is open to all institutes of higher learning. The objective is to support the teaching of cloud technologies as well as basing the centre's everyday work on cloud systems.

The Wroclaw centre will offer at least 10 cloud-based courses to more than 1500 students. The new curriculum will be based mainly on IBM Tivoli software, IBM officials said.

"The new cloud center will provide a common platform for students and professors, industry partners and government agencies to work on real solutions based on cloud computing that will align people and technology effectively, and will generate value for both services providers and clients," said Professor Czeslaw Smutnicki, director of the Institute of Computer Engineering, Control and Robotics, Wroclaw University of Technology.

"We plan to start immediately with a cloud computing practice for over 500 students later this summer. The cooperation will continue in the field of education, PhD programs and research," added Smutnicki.
