Workload bursts have become notorious for rendering numerous web information systems unavailable. While cloud computing has the potential to alleviate this problem by offering computing resources on an on-demand basis, important challenges remain in finding the right resource control strategies to scale resources cost-effectively and to overcome the(More)
Efficient road traffic incident handling is essential to the overall operations of transport management. Traffic incident handling requires fast and accurate retrieval of contact information for senior executives, as well as that for the intervention crew near the incident location. A user interface mock-up based on multimodal user interaction technology is(More)
How many cloud resources does an application provider require to manage workload bursts that often accompany events of public interest, (like product announcements or sporting events), and when will these resources be required? The availability and performance qualities of systems from numerous domains have often been compromised by such bursts,(More)
A distinctive component of cloud-based applications is the elasticity control. This component facilitates the adaptation necessary for an application to maintain service quality in the presence of fluctuating demand. Elasticity control achieves this adaptation at runtime by managing the expansion and contraction of resource capacity in response to demand.(More)
