Visualizing the Cloud. Clouds too complex to grasp without visualization. Fine example courtesy DTrace.
I’ve worked on visualizations for a while, most recently with heatmaps for Joyent’s Cloud Analytics. While we’re using and enhancing these right now, we are also in a great position to continue developing new visualizations for cloud computing, given:
-Easy observability into all nodes via zones, and deeper analysis using DTrace.
-Large datacenters running interesting cloud computing workloads from a large variety of customers.
