The Huawei-Telus Innovation Centre for Enterprise Cloud Services opened today at Carleton University. The centre was created through a $1.4 million investment made by Huawei and Telus.

Located in Carleton’s new engineering building, students, faculty and industry will research real-world problems associated with enterprise clouds including management of computing, on demand storage and network resources, data-centre networking, scalability, business continuity, and security, the three organizations said in a release.

“This initiative will enable Carleton to work with a growing number of innovators in the field of cloud computing research,” said Ibrahim Gedeon, chief technology officer at Telus.

Research projects will include resource management in clouds that give rise to high system performance while conserving power, traffic control for data-centre networks, and virtual machine migration within the cloud.
