Press Release

Paris, March 25, 2012. Telecom ParisTech and Paris 13 University have formed on March 23 the International Working Group on Cloud Computing Resiliency (IWGCR) with a mission to monitor and analyze Cloud Computing resiliency. The working group is composed of I.T. Executives, academic researchers and industry representatives.

Maurice Gagnaire, Professor at Telecom ParisTech says “There is a lack of user awareness about resiliency of Cloud Computing. The main goal of our working group is to gather data about Cloud Computing availability and analyze the risks of Cloud Computing from a resiliency point of view with a scientific approach taking its roots in Telecommunications.”

Camille Coti, Researcher at Galileo Institute, says “Research in distributed computing requires realistic data to model the availability of Cloud Computing services and design efficient algorithms for resiliency.”

Yingjie XU, researcher at Nexedi, says “IWGCR will also monitor risk factors for Cloud Computing resiliency, such as misconfiguration of network routes which can lead to service outage for certain users.”. “The impact of Natural disasters such as earthquakes will also be analyzed” adds Kazuhiko Shiozaki, researcher at Nexedi.

Pierre Delort, President of the French Association of CIO (ANDSI), says “Taking data informed decisions with Cloud Computing services relies mainly on reliable sources about service availability.”

Jonathan Le Lous, Head of Innovation at Alterway, confirms that “system integrators also need trustable figures for Cloud Computing service availability in order to design hybrid IT solutions partly based on Cloud which can match their customer expectations.”

Stephen Lubiarz, manager of international relations at Mines Telecom Institute, concludes “The primary focus of the International Working Group on Cloud Computing Resiliency (IWGCR) is to provide reliable data about Cloud Computing service availability required for IT governance and IT research.”
