At 15.30 on Monday May 24th, 2010, Steve Ballmer - CEO of Microsoft and his delegation arrived at Hanoi University of Science Technology to present the benefits of Cloud Computing Technology to HUST's officials and students.

"I am very joyful to share the chances which cloud computing brings and its potential effects on Vietnam" said Steve Ballmer in the rapturous applause. He stated that cloud computing has already been as a worldwide trend and no country could be an outsider in the near future.



To Ballmer, cloud computing helped people enhance and improve their communication for individual goal, society and works. "The wonderful thing in cloud computing is converging all advantages of Internet” said Ballmer.

In the past, he added, it was most difficult for student and developer to create a new application. They did not know how to release them broadly and persuade people to setup and deploy such application. Currently, thanks to cloud computing, such barriers are not problems.

"Authors shall be able to release them worldwide and earn money more easily than ever", said Ballmer. He also highlighted that with a large application of cloud computing many kinds and models of new business could be developed. So, with energy, young strength and creativity, students are recommended to be especially suitable for new technology such as cloud computing.

The second advantage, as mentioned by Steve, is the capability of self-learning like robots in science fiction, which in reverse direction, would help students study, decide and take action.
