Blueprinting Approach in Support of Cloud Computing

Abstract: Current cloud service offerings, i.e., Software-as-a-service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings are often provided as monolithic, one-size-fits-all solutions and give little or no room for customization. This limits the ability of Service-based Application (SBA) developers to configure and syndicate offerings from multiple SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS providers to address their application requirements. Furthermore,…

On Engineering Cloud Applications – State of the Art, Shortcomings Analysis and Approach

GridCC

Grid Enabled Remote Instrumentation with Distributed Control and Computation (GridCC)

The goal of GridCC was to exploit Grid opportunities for secure and collaborative work of distributed teams to remotely operate and monitor scientific equipment using the Grid’s massive memory and computing resources for storing and processing data generated by this kind of equipment. The project aims to extend the state of the art of computing…

Workflow Support for Volunteer Computing

Workflow Support for Volunteer Computing

Title: Workflow Support for Volunteer Computing (tentative)M Mentor: Francesco Lelli  Volunteer computing is a type of distributed computing in which computer owners donate their computing resources (such as processing power and storage) to one or more “projects”. Successful applications that adopted this technique include SETI@Home [1] and Folding@home [2]  Toward this idea in this project the…

Abstract Representation of Cloud Computing
