Chris C. Kemp (NASA Chief Technology Officer)
Chris C. Kemp is NASA’s first Chief Technology Officer for IT.
As CTO-IT, Kemp is responsible for NASA’s Enterprise Architecture and for introducing new and emerging technologies into NASA’s IT roadmap.
He leads a number of innovative pilot projects at NASA, including the Nebula Cloud Computing Platform, and is also responsible for NASA’s contributions to the Obama Administration’s Open Government Initiative.
Kemp joined NASA Ames Research Center in 2006 as Director of Strategic Business Development and helped forge partnerships with Google and Microsoft. From 2007 to 2010, he served as Chief Information Officer at NASA Ames Research Center, where he was responsible for much of the IT infrastructure at Ames and several NASA-wide services, including NASA’s IT Security Operations Center.
In addition to serving as Chairman of NASA’s Web Council, Kemp is a member of the Cloud Computing Executive Steering Committee and is Co-Chairman of the Federal Cloud Computing Standards Working Group.
Prior to joining NASA, Kemp helped create the third largest online community Classmates.com, the leading web-based vacation rental platform Escapia, and the first online grocery shopping platform for Kroger, the world’s largest grocery store chain.
=== Title ===
NASA Nebula Cloud and NII collaboration
=== Abstract ===
I shall describe NASA Nebula open souce cloud service benifits and uniquness. Moreover, I show you a brief demonstration which is a first step in NASA and NII collaboration in cloud computing technology.
NIST describes Cloud Computing as “a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g. networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.”
Nebula is a Cloud Computing pilot under development at NASA Ames Research Center.
It integrates a set of open-source components into a seamless, self-service platform, providing high-capacity computing, storage and network connectivity using a virtualized, scalable approach to achieve cost and energy efficiencies. Nebula is currently being used for education and public outreach, for collaboration and public input, and also for mission support.
Nebula enhances NASA’s ability to collaborate with external scientists and researchers by providing high-speed data connections and consistent tool sets and open data APIs used by commercial Cloud providers. Built from the ground up around principles of transparency and public collaboration, Nebula is also an open-source project.
The primary Nebula container is at Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, California. The Ames Internet Exchange (AIX) which hosts the cloud, was formerly “Mae West,” one of the original nodes of the Internet, and is still a major peering location for Tier 1 ISPs, as well as being the home of the “E” root name servers. Aside from these peering relationships, we also connect to CENIC and Internet2, at 10GigE connections.
