Abstraction of physical hardware using infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) clouds leads to the simplistic view that resources are homogeneous and that infinite scaling is possible with linear increases in performance. Hosting scientific modeling services using IaaS clouds requires awareness of application resource requirements and careful management of cloud… CONTINUE READING
