Abstract: 

In addition to providing storage services to end users, cloud storage systems enable cloud-aware programs to communicate between themselves in a distributed and asynchronous manner by using the cloud as a platform for Inter-Process Communications (IPC). This session discusses ways that CDMI enables cloud IPC, and the various use cases enabled by the use of a cloud in this manner. Special emphasis is given to CDMI Queues, which provide a first-in-first-out storage object, and are valuable for fan-in, fan-out and buffering messages and data exchanged between programs.
