Sky Computing

Ion Stoica, University of California, Berkeley


Technology ecosystems often undergo significant transformations as they mature. For example, telephony, the Internet, and PCs all started with a single provider, but each is now served by a competitive market that uses comprehensive technology standards to provide compatibility. In this talk, I will present our view on how the cloud ecosystem, only fifteen years old, could evolve as it matures, and discuss our early results and experience in this endeavor.
