HP, Intel, and Yahoo!'s Heads Are in the Clouds
"The HP, Intel and Yahoo! Cloud Computing Test Bed will provide a globally distributed, Internet-scale testing environment designed to encourage research on the software, data center management and hardware issues associated with cloud computing at a larger scale than ever before. The initiative will also support research of cloud applications and services."

"We are pleased to engage with the academic research community -- open collaboration with the academia is in our DNA at Intel Research," said Andrew A. Chien, vice president and director of Intel Research. "Creating large-scale test beds is important because they lower barriers to innovation and provide the opportunity to experiment and learn at scale."
In addition to serving the cloud computing research needs of HP, Intel, and Yahoo!, once the locations are fully up and running later this year, an official selection process will be put in place to allow researchers from other companies, organizations, and institutions to access the test bed.
