RStudio Server Amazon Machine Image (AMI) - Louis Aslett
"Amazon’s EC2 platform provides a convenient environment for rapidly procuring computational resources in the cloud. As a Statistician, my interest is specifically in statistical computation with R and the advent of RStudio Server has made it a hand-in-glove fit with the cloud. To get started with the Amazon cloud, you must first signup for an AWS account if you don’t already have one. To use the AMIs described on this page, you simply click your chosen AMI ID which will take you through to the Amazon web interface and preselect the correct region and AMI. Simply ensure that your ‘security group’ settings allow incoming HTTP (port 80) traffic and then copy-and-paste the ‘Public DNS’ for your running instance to a web browser address bar to bring up the login page. Click here for a simple video guide to using the AMIs listed here, or for more detailed information read on."

iRODS (integrated Rule-Oriented Data System)
"The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) is an open-source data management software in use at research organizations and government agencies worldwide. iRODS is a production-level distribution aimed at deployment in mission critical environments. It functions independently of storage resources and abstracts data control away from storage devices and device location allowing users to take control of their data. As data volumes grow and data services become more complex, iRODS is increasingly important in data management. The development infrastructure supports exhaustive testing on supported platforms; plug-in support for microservices, storage resources, drivers, and databases; and extensive documentation, training and support services."

Paradigm - To the Cloud: Big Data in a Turbulent World
"In the wake of revelations about National Security Agency activities—many of which occur “in the cloud”—this book offers both enlightenment and a critical view. Cloud computing and big data are arguably the most significant forces in information technology today. In clear prose, To the Cloud explores where the cloud originated, what it means, and how important it is for business, government, and citizens. It describes the intense competition among cloud companies like Amazon and Google, the spread of the cloud to government agencies like the controversial NSA, and the astounding growth of entire cloud cities in China. From advertising to trade shows, the cloud and big data are furiously marketed to the world, even as dark clouds loom over environmental, privacy, and employment issues that arise from the cloud. Is the cloud the long-promised information utility that will solve many of the world’s economic and social problems? Or is it just marketing hype? To the Cloud provides the first thorough analysis of the potential and the problems of a technology that may very well disrupt the world."
