Cloud computing is a new computing paradigm, whereby shared resources such as infrastructure, hardware platform, and software applications are provided to users on-demand over the internet (Cloud) as services. Successful provision of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and, consequently, widespread adoption of cloud computing necessitates accurate performance evaluation that allows service providers to dimension their resources in order to fulfil the service level agreements with their customers…
