Cloud Computing, the long-held dream of computing as a utility, has the potential to transform a large part of the IT industry, making software even more attractive as a service and shaping the way IT hardware is designed and purchased. [] Key Result From a hardware point of view, three aspects are new in Cloud Computing.

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

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

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

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.

On the Performance Variability of Production Cloud Services

It is found that the performance of about half of the cloud services investigated exhibits yearly and daily patterns, but also that most services have periods of especially stable performance, which gives evidence that performance variability can be an important factor in cloud provider selection.

The Economic Perspective of Cloud Computing

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

Building database applications in the cloud

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.

Cloud Computing: Analysis of Various Services

A comprehensive classification for describing cloud computing architectures is presented and survey of several existing cloud computing services developed by various projects globally such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Sun and Force.com are identified.

Services in the Cloud Computing era: A survey

Six categories of Cloud Computing services are divided into six categories and detailed analysis to these services are provided, as well as those companies which provide the corresponding service categories.

Eucalyptus : A Technical Report on an Elastic Utility Computing Archietcture Linking Your Programs to Useful Systems

Eucalyptus is presented, an open-source software implementation of cloud computing that utilizes compute resources that are typically available to researchers, such as clusters and workstation farms, and emphasizes modularity, allowing researchers to experiment with their own security, scalability, scheduling, and interface implementations.

Dynamo: amazon's highly available key-value store

D Dynamo is presented, a highly available key-value storage system that some of Amazon's core services use to provide an "always-on" experience and makes extensive use of object versioning and application-assisted conflict resolution in a manner that provides a novel interface for developers to use.

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).

The Google file system

This paper presents file system interface extensions designed to support distributed applications, discusses many aspects of the design, and reports measurements from both micro-benchmarks and real world use.

Optimal pricing of content delivery network (CDN) services

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.

OpenFlow: enabling innovation in campus networks

This whitepaper proposes OpenFlow: a way for researchers to run experimental protocols in the networks they use every day. OpenFlow is based on an Ethernet switch, with an internal flow-table, and a

MapReduce: simplified data processing on large clusters

This presentation explains how the underlying runtime system automatically parallelizes the computation across large-scale clusters of machines, handles machine failures, and schedules inter-machine communication to make efficient use of the network and disks.
