Cloud computing may help in nuclear radiation disaster response

Cloud computing could help the federal government respond to a catastrophic nuclear radiation disaster. The National Nuclear Security Administration just finished a test run of a cloud-based data collection system that combines radiation measurements from states across the country. The agency says the inspiration for how the system works comes from observing the impact of the Fukishima reactor leak in Japan. NNSA coordinated the test run with 200 people working from 38 different states. Together they collected and analyzed 21,000 measurements of environmental radiation around the country to see if anything was out of the ordinary. The 200 participants took water and soil samples, and luckily they didn't find anything of catastrophic proportions. NNSA says it's expanding the use of the cloud system to other agencies, too.
