Chivukula Sree Rama Prabhu

Remote rural areas are constrained by serious limitations such as lack of reliable power supply, etc., which are essential for setting up advanced IT infrastructure such as Servers, Storage, etc,. Therefore, Cloud Computing comprising of an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is well suited to provide such IT infrastructure in remote rural areas. Additional cloud layers of Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) can be added above IaaS. Cluster based IaaS Cloud can be set up by using open source middleware Eucalyptus in Data Centres of NIC. The Data Centres of the Central Government and various State Governments can be integrated with SWANs (State Wide Area Networks) and NICNET together to form the e-governance grid of India. Web Service Repositories at Centre, State and District level can be built over the national e-governance grid of India. Using Globus Toolkit we can achieve stateful web services with speed and security. Adding the cloud layer over the e-governance grid will make a grid-cloud environment possible through Globus Nimbus. Service delivery can be in terms of web services delivery through heterogeneous client devices. Data mining using Weka4WS and Data mining grid can produce meaningful knowledge discovery from data. In this Paper a plan of action is provided for the implementation of the above, after presenting the architecture of the cloud and architecture of web services delivery using the cloud.
