A Cloud Computing Survey: Developments and Future Trends in Infrastructure as a Service Computing

  title={A Cloud Computing Survey: Developments and Future Trends in Infrastructure as a Service Computing},
  author={Jonathan Stuart Ward and Adam Barker},
Cloud computing is a recent paradigm based around the notion of delivery of resources via a service model over the Internet. Despite being a new paradigm of computation, cloud computing owes its origins to a number of previous paradigms. The term cloud computing is well defined and no longer merits rigorous taxonomies to furnish a definition. Instead this survey paper considers the past, present and future of cloud computing. As an evolution of previous paradigms, we consider the predecessors… 
A Systematic Review of Cloud Computing, Big Data and Databases on the Cloud
The current cloud-computing based frameworks are potentially neglecting fundamental database properties regarding atomicity and durability issues, finding that challenges have been gaining momentum in this area from 2008 to 2013.
A Cloud Computing Survey from Users Centricto Business Centric
This paper tries to capture the logic behind Cloud Computing wide popularity both in business as well as individual aspects, and covers up its evolution journey, its impact in present technical scenario, followed by its architecture, technical aspects and its kinds of models.
Efficient monitoring of large scale infrastructure as a service clouds
This thesis proposes Varanus, a new cloud monitoring tool, which eschews conventional architectures in order to outperform current tools in a cloud setting and demonstrates how this tool withstands the effects of scale and elasticity which impair current tools and how it employs a novel architecture which reduces fiscal costs.
This paper proposes to optimize scheduling using BAT-Gravitational hybrid algorithm with resources being chosen on trust with the aim of achieving cloud computing efficiency.
Optimal Scheduling of Data-Intensive Applications in Cloud-Based Video Distribution Services
This paper proposes a novel scheduling mechanism as a lubricant between CAROM and data-intensive applications for optimizing access latencies while maintaining the benefit of low storage cost, and proves the performance of the algorithm is significantly better than that of the general two-layer algorithm.
Ahead in the G-clouds: Policies, Deployment and Issues
It is shown how measures of e-government that focus on outputs may be missing a substantial part of the picture: why is this being done and what is the capacity of this technology to scale to social, economic and cultural environment of the country involved.
CAC-live: Centralized assisted cloud P2P live streaming
This paper proposes an architecture for improving the quality of service (QoS) of the peers by using virtual machines (VMs) dynamically are rented from cloud providers to increase the amount of total available bandwidth.
Exposition of Integrating Cloud Computing in Information and Communication Technology Courses in Higher Education
The reviewed literature reveals key challenges namely, controversy about CC definition, concerns about trust due to vendor-lock, security concerns, a new form of a digital divide, and the need to develop academics skills.
Efficient Partitioning and Allocation of Data for Workflow Compositions
An approach that partitions and allocates small units of data, called micropartitions, to multiple database nodes and improves data access efficiency over standard partitioning of data is introduced.


Cloud computing security issues and challenges
Security issues, requirements and challenges that cloud service providers (CSP) face during cloud engineering are discussed and recommended security standards and management models to address these are suggested for technical and business community.
The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing
This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics, three service models, and four deployment models.
The Eucalyptus Open-Source Cloud-Computing System
This work presents Eucalyptus -- an open-source software framework for cloud computing that implements what is commonly referred to as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS); systems that give users the ability to run and control entire virtual machine instances deployed across a variety physical resources.
Towards a Cross Platform Cloud API - Components for Cloud Federation
This work describes a new approach for a cross platform API that encompass all cloud service levels and expects that the implementation of this approach will offer a higher degree of portability and vendor independence for Cloud based applications.
Cloud Security and Privacy - An Enterprise Perspective on Risks and Compliance
This book, written by recognized authorities in the tech security world, addresses issues that affect any organization preparing to use cloud computing as an option and provides the detailed information on cloud computing security that has been lacking, until now.
A view of cloud computing
Clearing the clouds away from the true potential and obstacles posed by this computing capability.
Data Consistency Properties and the Trade-offs in Commercial Cloud Storage: the Consumers' Perspective
It is found that many platforms seem in practice to offer more consistency than they promise; there are also cases where the platform offers consumers a choice between stronger and weaker consistency, but there is no observed benefit from accepting weaker consistency properties.
Service-Oriented Architecture: Concepts, Technology, and Design
Leading the way to the true service-oriented enterprise, Thomas Erl demystifies the complexities of the open WS-I standards with detailed practical discussions and case studies.
Amazon S3 for science grids: a viable solution?
Amazon.com has introduced the Simple Storage Service (S3), a commodity-priced storage utility. S3 aims to provide storage as a low-cost, highly available service, with a simple 'pay-as-you-go'
