Amazon.com’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Simple Storage Service (S3) and Simple Queue Service (SQS) offer enterprise-class computing, storage and coordination facilities to any organization or individual in the world with a valid credit card. This paper details our experience working with these commodity grid computing services between November 2006 and May 2007, including an analysis of the overall system’s API and ease-of-use; an analysis of EC2’s management and security facilities; an end… Expand
Towards the integration of StoRM on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)
TLDR
The extension of StoRM is considered in order to integrate a new type of storage resource: the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), a simple Web services interface offering access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of Web sites. Expand
On the Network Performance of Amazon S3 Cloud-Storage Service
TLDR
This work has characterized how the performance of the network may impact the quality of service experienced by final users on the basis of their location and the configuration of services, and found how performance heavily changes according to the location of the customers and the cloud region they rely on. Expand
Cumulus: an open source storage cloud for science
TLDR
Cumulus, an open source implementation of the Amazon S3 REST API is presented and provides scalable and reliable access to scientific data and has added features necessary to support the econometrics important to the scientific community. Expand
A High Performance, QoS-Enabled, S3-Based Object Store
TLDR
This paper presents an approach to introducing a QoS-enabled function into the S3-based object store, and develops Papio S3, an object store which supports both of these S3 interfaces, along with achievement of high performance upload/download using the multipart data transfer. Expand
A Reliable and Scalable Service Bus Based on Amazon SQS
TLDR
The paper evaluates the performance of the cloud-based bus and studies the influence of the network latency, depending on different geographical locations and configurations, to conclude that thecloud-based message bus is faster, more scalable and more reliable. Expand
Consistency Benchmarking: Evaluating the Consistency Behavior of Middleware Services in the Cloud
TLDR
This work proposes an approach to benchmark the consistency behavior of services by example of Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS), a hosted, Web-scale, distributed message queue that is exposed as a Web service. Expand
Runtime measurements in the cloud
TLDR
A study of the performance variance of the most widely used Cloud infrastructure (Amazon EC2) from different perspectives using established microbenchmarks to measure performance variance in CPU, I/O, and network and a multi-node MapReduce application to quantify the impact on real dataintensive applications. Expand
Exploring the cloud from passive measurements: The Amazon AWS case
TLDR
A characterization of Amazon's Web Services is presented, the most prominent cloud provider that offers computing, storage, and content delivery platforms, to unveil their infrastructure, the pervasiveness of content they host, and their traffic allocation policies. Expand
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'Expand
A comparative study of cloud computing environments and the development of a framework for the automatic deployment of scaleable cloud based applications
TLDR
A proof-of-concept software framework for the provisioning and deployment of automatically scaling applications is built on Amazon Web Services which is shown to be best suited for the development of such a framework. Expand

Availability, usage, and deployment characteristics of the domain name system
TLDR
Based on large-scale measurements taken from servers in a large content distribution network, a detailed study of key characteristics of the DNS infrastructure, such as load distribution, availability, and deployment patterns of DNS servers is presented. Expand
End-to-end routing behavior in the Internet
TLDR
It is found that Internet paths are heavily dominated by a single prevalent route, but that the time periods over which routes persist show wide variation, ranging from seconds up to days. Expand
PlanetLab: an overlay testbed for broad-coverage services
TLDR
This paper discribes the initial implementation of PlanetLab, including the mechanisms used to impelment virtualization, and the collection of core services used to manage PlanetLab. Expand
A measurement study of available bandwidth estimation tools
TLDR
Spruce is introduced, a simple, light-weight tool for measuring available bandwidth, and compares it with two existing tools, IGI and Pathload, over 400 different Internet paths and shows that Spruce is more accurate than Pathload and IGI. Expand
