terena networking conference 2010

Session

Plenary

The power of a network lies in the services and applications that are offered over the network infrastructure, enabling us to work, learn and play. Without them, the network is of little or no value. Media and content delivery, e-learning and e-research have challenged the paradigms of the research and education community. Grids, cloud computing and storage offer new tools for increasingly demanding applications.
Within this topic, the sessions will demonstrate how networks already contribute to the excellence of innovative applications and services, and which pending crucial issues need solutions for increasing the performance and quality of applications.
