CSE in Cloud: Computational Science and Engineering will use Yahoo!’s cloud computing cluster to conduct large-scale research

Yahoo! today announced that it has expanded its partnerships
with top U.S. universities to advance cloud computing research. The
University of California at Berkeley, Cornell University and the
University of Massachusetts at Amherst will join Carnegie Mellon
University in using Yahoo!’s cloud computing cluster to conduct
large-scale systems software research and explore new applications that
analyze Internet-scale data sets, ranging from voting records to online
news sources.

At Berkeley the Computational Science and Engineering program
anticipates that the Yahoo! cluster will be used by a broad array of
faculty investigators and graduate students from social scientists and
economists to astrophysicist and Bioengineers. Obviously, an exciting
aspect of this work will be working with Yahoo! to analyze large scale
social-economical-political data by our faculty and to further refine
these target areas, and to identify new ones among the vast array of
potential computational research avenues at UC Berkeley and LBNL. The
breadth of this enterprise promises to create extensive new
applications of interest to Yahoo! for high performance and cloud
