    One of the main challenges to exploit the potential of Cloud computing is the efficient management of virtual resources supplied by cloud providers. In this paper, we deal with a business model of cloud computing, where third-part entities, the cloud brokers, work as intermediary between cloud providers and clients. Brokers are assumed to provide the intermediation service by addressing multiple c... View full abstract»

    Cloud Service has become now a real trend in the development of network services. It is a concept of deporting resources and services on remote servers as opposed to traditional hosting on the user workstation. In fact, cloud services require more bandwidth due to high quality media. Content Distribution Network (CDN) with a mechanism of replication of information among multiple servers is a solut...

    In the today Internet of Services, one of the challenges of Application Service Providers (ASPs) is to fulfill the QoS requirements stated in the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) established with different consumers and to minimize the investment and management costs. Cloud computing is the promising solution for ASPs that increasingly demand for an elastic infrastructure. In this paper, we formula... View full abstract»

    The common way to purchase computing capacity is to acquire a fix amount of servers which are hosted in a data center. The reserved amount of resources depends on the maximum demand that could occur. This over provisioning of resources is associated with high costs. Cloud providers promise to reduce the costs while guaranteeing always a good performance for the outsourced services. A reducing of t... View full abstract»

    With the explosive growth of the Internet and the incredible development of network applications, the variation in traffic volume has become one of the most important problems faced by network operators. Designing a network using a single ``busy hour'' traffic matrix strains credibility due to the high volatility of traffic patterns. Thus, there is a need for efficient dynamic reconfiguration meth...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (394 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this article we describe an approach for autonomic management of legacy software in distributed environments (cluster, grid or cloud). Our propositions have been implemented in a tool (TUNe) based on diagrams formalisms. We describe particularly the property of self-Protecting. The various mechanisms needed to maintain the consistency of the managed system, are described: autonomic creation or ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we address a important and still unanswered question in mobile cloud computing "how mobility impacts the distributed processing power of network and computing clouds formed from mobile ad-hoc networks ?". Indeed, mobile ad-hoc networks potentially offer an aggregate cloud of resources delivering collectively processing, storage and networking resources. We demonstrate that the mobil...

    In this paper we will check several different, and difficult, problems, and present what effects the automatic load-balancing and asynchrony have on the speed of resolution of problems. We conclude that the effects of parallelization are noted with difficult problems, although there is a complicated interplay between the number of nodes and migration rate that makes difficult to say exactly what i...

    The cloud represents a computing paradigm where scalable virtualized resources are provided ``as a service'' over the Internet. Mobile/wireless clouds of seamlessly integrated wireless networks is the latest technology trend. Moving the ``Test bed as a Service'' notion to the wireless cloud, enables ordering of user slices for experimentation on wireless test beds, scattered across multiple, feder... View full abstract»

    Cloud storage has recently appeared as a promising solution to handle the immense volume of data produced in nowadays' rich and ubiquitous digital environment. Existing approaches, however, do not fully address certain significant issues, such as Service Level Agreements, which tend to be rudimentary, and management of cloud systems, which often lacks sophistication. In this paper, we propose the ... View full abstract»

    Cloud Computing offers application developers an abstract view of computational resources that can be provisioned on demand over a computer network. This model allows organizations to concentrate on the applications needed to support their core business, instead of having to manage the infrastructure required to run those applications. Yet, even though this approach promises very compelling benefi... View full abstract»
