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. Expand
An Investigation into Financial Brokerage for Cloud Computing
Cloud Computing is the latest paradigm backed to be the realisation of the long sought dream of supplying compute resource as a utility. In 2009, a team of researchers at UC Berkeley’s RAD labExpand
On the Performance Variability of Production Cloud Services
TLDR
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. Expand
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. Expand
Cloud Computing: Analysis of Various Services
TLDR
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. Expand
Services in the Cloud Computing era: A survey
TLDR
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. Expand

Eucalyptus : A Technical Report on an Elastic Utility Computing Archietcture Linking Your Programs to Useful Systems
TLDR
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. Expand
Dynamo: amazon's highly available key-value store
TLDR
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. Expand
An Evaluation of Amazon's Grid Computing Services: EC2, S3, and SQS
TLDR
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). Expand
The Google file system
TLDR
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. Expand
A Computational Economy for Grid Computing and its Implementation in the Nimrod-G Resource Brok
TLDR
The authors' service-oriented grid computing system called Nimrod-G manages all operations associated with remote execution including resource discovery, trading, scheduling based on economic principles and a user-defined QoS requirement. Expand
A commodity market algorithm for pricing substitutable Grid resources
TLDR
It is shown that Smale's method can be adapted to handle this type of Grid resources market, and that price stability, allocative efficiency, and fairness are realized. Expand
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.

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 aExpand
MapReduce: Simplified Data Processing on Large Clusters
TLDR
This paper presents the implementation of MapReduce, a programming model and an associated implementation for processing and generating large data sets that runs on a large cluster of commodity machines and is highly scalable. Expand
MapReduce: simplified data processing on large clusters
TLDR
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. Expand
