Distinguished Visitor Presents to Global Audience
Ignacio Castillo, Distinguished Visitor (2015–2017), partnered with the IEEE Computer Society Turkey Chapter Chair, Fatih Ugurdag, to broadcast a presentation on “Data Centers: The Cloud Computing IaaS” to a worldwide audience through YouTube.
A professor and researcher at Autonomous University of México City and consultant at Datacenter Dynamics, Ignacio offered an overview of cloud computing (SaaS, PaaS & IaaS) but centered on IaaS, delving into the concept of data centers—where clouds live.
Ignacio presented a global picture, taking into consideration fundamental elements, trends, challenges and special applications. Then, at the end of the lecture, Mr. Castillo discussed industry standards and certifications.
