Cloud computing is a transformative approach to computing that involves many aspects, among which include large-scale distributed algorithms that run on massive datasets (structured, semi-structured, and unstructured), "warehouse-size" computers residing in enormous datacenters, rapid utility-based provisioning of computing resources on-demand, and ubiquitous web-based applications accessible from anywhere. However, cloud computing is far more than about technology: it promises to fundamentally transform how we interact with information.

The Cloud Computing Center at the University of Maryland, which started in fall 2009, consists of individuals drawn from multiple disciplines interested in collectively shaping the future of cloud computing through research, education, and outreach. Our work focuses on applications of cloud computing, cloud architectures and infrastructure, as well as broader societal issues.
