Clearing the clouds away from the true potential and obstacles posed by this computing capability.

TLDR
Cloud computing means that developers with innovative ideas for new Internet services no longer require the large capital outlays in hardware to deploy their service or the human expense to operate it, and companies with large batch-oriented tasks can get results as quickly as their programs can scale.

A Comparison of Private Cloud Systems

TLDR
A through comparison between three of the most popular open source cloud software systems is made and the experience with installing and maintaining small deployments using these three software suits is described.

An Investigation into Financial Brokerage for Cloud Computing

TLDR
This project extended research proposing that a third party, acting as a broker, could be introduced that would not only benefit the providers and consumers of the cloud resource, but could also make a profit for itself, benefiting all parties involved.

The Economic Perspective of Cloud Computing

TLDR
The concept, strengths, weakness, oppurtuties, threats and research agenda of cloud computing from the economic perspective are presented.

Building database applications in the cloud

TLDR
This thesis is to explore how web-based database applications with low or high consistency requirements can be developed and deployed on different cloud infrastructure providers, based on a set of newly developed protocols guaranteeing eventual consistency up to serializability.

Optimal pricing of content delivery network (CDN) services

TLDR
Analytical models suggest that, consistent with industry practices, CDN pricing functions should provide volume discounts to content providers and show that the most likely subscribers to CDN services are those content providers with high volume of traffic and with content having low security requirements.
