Erlang Factory: Michael Truog The Cloud as an Interface

A Cloud as an Interface -

Cloudi - not for webapps or data cloud, but for processing. For managing processes and making sure they are fault tolerant.

Cloudi is a flexible framework for private cloud computing. Its dynamically loud balanced and scheduled. Distributed execution of C/C++ work.

Cloudi is an alternative to paying for a blackbox commercial cloud.

Erlang coordinates all the work and any crash of the C/C++ code.

Cloudi is meant for long running intensive data processing like text processing and numerical computations.
