Figures and Tables from this paper

Cloud computing and electricity
Assessing the strengths, weaknesses, and general applicability of the computing-as-utility business model suggests that the business model is likely to grow in the coming years.
Multi-Agent based Cloud Services
This presentation explains how cloud computing systems provide large-scale infrastructures for high-performance computing that can adapt to user needs and how these systems are adapting to the changing environment.
Cloud services certification
How to address the lack of transparency, trust, and acceptance in cloud services.
Navigating the Cloud Computing Landscape - Technologies, Services, and Adopters
Cloud computing represents a fundamental shift in the delivery of information technology services that has permanently changed the computing landscape and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
An Applied Evaluation and Assessment of Cloud Computing Platforms
This thesis aims to conduct a survey of how cloud computing resources are used by enabling the long held idea of utility computing by identifying the most effective and efficient ways of using these resources.
The Challenge of Cloud Control
Today’s cloud data center infrastructures are not even near being able to cope with the enormous and rapidly vary-ing capacity demands that will be reality in a near future. So far, very little is ...
New approaches to security and availability for cloud data
Extending the data trust perimeter from the enterprise to the public cloud requires more than encrypting data; it needs to be about more than encryption.
Economic and Business Dimensions Cloud Computing and Electricity: Beyond the Utility Model
An overly simplistic reliance on the utility model risks blinding us to the real opportunities and challenges of cloud computing.
A Study on Cloud Computing Security Challenges
This research presents a meta-modelling framework that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and therefore expensive and expensive process of manually cataloging and extracting data from data centres across the globe.
A Global SLA-Aware Approach for Aggregating Services in the Cloud
With the advent of Cloud computing, services are more and more deployed on the worldwide and enterprises are massively migrating their application to the cloud. By nature, enterprises requirements


Above the Clouds: A Berkeley View of Cloud Computing
This work focuses on SaaS Providers (Cloud Users) and Cloud Providers, which have received less attention than SAAS Users, and uses the term Private Cloud to refer to internal datacenters of a business or other organization, not made available to the general public.
The Case for Energy-Proportional Computing
Energy-proportional designs would enable large energy savings in servers, potentially doubling their efficiency in real-life use, particularly the memory and disk subsystems.
An Evaluation of Amazon's Grid Computing Services: EC2, S3, and SQS
It is found that this collection of AmazonWeb Services (AWS) has great promise but are hobbled by service consistency problems, the lack of a Service Level Agreement (SLA), and a problematic Web Services Licensing Agreement (WSLA).
