Above the Clouds: A Berkeley View of Cloud Computing

This work focuses on SaaS Providers (Cloud Users) and Cloud Providers, which have received less attention than SAAS Users, and uses the term Private Cloud to refer to internal datacenters of a business or other organization, not made available to the general public.

Cloud computing for small research groups in computational science and engineering: current status and outlook

Although cloud computing is perceived as an interesting model, several issues that prevent a wide adoption of cloud computing from small CSE research groups are identified and recommendations for addressing these issues are presented in order to attractsmall CSE groups to utilize cloud computing.

The Reservoir model and architecture for open federated cloud computing

The Reservoir project is motivated by the vision of implementing an architecture that would enable providers of cloud infrastructure to dynamically partner with each other to create a seemingly infinite pool of IT resources while fully preserving their individual autonomy in making technological and business management decisions.

Minimizing Execution Costs when Using Globally Distributed Cloud Services

This paper forms a non-linear programming model to minimize the data retrieval and execution cost of data-intensive workflows in Clouds and retrieves data from Cloud storage resources such that the amount of data transferred is inversely proportional to the communication cost.

A perspective on scientific cloud computing

It is argued that a private-to-public cloud deployment trajectory will be very common, if not dominant, and this trajectory can be used to define a progression of needed common practices and standards which, in turn, can be use to define deployment, development and fundamental research agendas.

InterCloud: Utility-Oriented Federation of Cloud Computing Environments for Scaling of Application Services

The results demonstrate that federated Cloud computing model has immense potential as it offers significant performance gains as regards to response time and cost saving under dynamic workload scenarios.
