Cloud computing changed how Los Angeles responds to a crisis
Ted Ross is proud of the state-of-the-art Emergency Operations Center on which more than 4 million Los Angeles residents will rely in the event of a terrorist attack, a flood, or an earthquake. "It's truly Kiefer Sutherland, 24-esque," says Ross, the chief information officer for the City of Los Angeles. It's a resource that helps America's second-most-populous city be more resilient, acting as a staging area for emergency responders to coordinate efforts. But there's only one of its scale — which is why the choice to add redundancy keeps Ross (and the rest of L.A.) sleeping soundly at night.
