The breakthrough of Cloud comes from its service oriented perspective where everything, including the infrastructure, is provided “as a service”. This model is really attractive and convenient for both providers and consumers, as a consequence the Cloud paradigm is quickly growing and widely spreading, also in non commercial contexts. In such a scenario, we propose to incorporate some elements of volunteer computing into the Cloud paradigm through the Cloud@Home solution, involving into the mix… 
Enhancing the Cloud Inter-operation Toolkit (CIT) to Support Multiple Cloud Service Models
TLDR
This work aims to improve the security measures in such an environment and to further optimize the resources and time consumed to establish the environment, and enhances CIT to support multiple cloud service models, thereby making it superior to all other existing inter-cloud facilitating approaches.
Enhancing Federated Cloud Management with an Integrated Service Monitoring Approach
TLDR
A federated cloud management solution that operates the federation through utilizing cloud-brokers for various IaaS providers and a minimal metric monitoring service has been designed and used together with a service monitoring solution to measure cloud performance.
Resource allocation in Cloud federation
Cloud computing is a steadily maturing large-scale model for providing on-demand IT resources on a pay-as-you-go basis. This emerging paradigm has rapidly revolutionized the IT industry and enabled

TLDR
This paper revisited existing cloud- Brokering algorithms in order to propose a new cloud-brokering architecture with the enhancement of brokered algorithms to improve brokering performance.
C-RCE: an Approach for Constructing and Managing a Cloud Service Broker
TLDR
The proposed C-RCE process may be used as a guideline and reference model for constructing, operating, and managing actual CSBs, including the management and operation of each proposed process.
Cloud broker service-oriented resource management model
TLDR
A detailed service-oriented dynamic resource management model is presented, which covers the issues of resource prediction, customer type-based resource estimation and reservation, advanced reservation, pricing, refunding and acquired quality of service-based refunding.
A survey on SLA-based brokering for inter-cloud computing
TLDR
This paper surveyed and evaluated some of the latest SLA-based service brokering projects and discussed a high level architectural view of cloud service broker derived from these projects.
Orchestrating the Deployment of High Availability Services on Multi-zone and Multi-cloud Scenarios
TLDR
This paper presents a novel orchestration method to automate the deployment and management of high availability multi-tier services on multiple availability zones, by introducing new affinity mechanisms, such as VM to location and role to role affinity/anti-affinity rules.
