    Cloud computing providers provision their resources into different types of virtual machine (VM) instances that are then allocated to the users for specific periods of time. The allocation of VM instances to users is usually determined through fixed-price allocation mechanisms that cannot guarantee an economically efficient allocation and the maximization of cloud provider's revenue. A better alte... View full abstract»

    Background--By leveraging cloud services, organizations can deploy their software systems over a pool of resources. However, organizations heavily depend on their business-critical systems, which have been developed over long periods. These legacy applications are usually deployed on-premise. In recent years, research in cloud migration has been carried out. However, there is no secondary study to... View full abstract»

    In cloud computing, a provider leases its computing resources in the form of virtual machines to users, and a price is charged for the period they are used. Though static pricing is the dominant pricing strategy in today's market, intuitively price ought to be dynamically updated to improve revenue. The fundamental challenge is to design an optimal dynamic pricing policy, with the presence of stoc... View full abstract»

    Outsourcing data to the cloud are beneficial for reasons of economy, scalability, and accessibility, but significant technical challenges remain. Sensitive data stored in the cloud must be protected from being read in the clear by a cloud provider that is honest-but-curious. Additionally, cloud-based data are increasingly being accessed by resource-constrained mobile devices for which the processi... View full abstract»

    We address the problem of providing users with the ability to assess the integrity of join results produced by external computational providers and computed over externally stored databases. Our approach relies on different mutually supporting techniques offering strong integrity protection guarantees at a limited cost. The application of the approach is completely transparent to the computational... View full abstract»

  • Is the Same Instance Type Created Equal? Exploiting Heterogeneity of Public Clouds

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):201 - 214
    Cited by:  Papers (17)

    Public cloud platforms might start with homogeneous hardware; nevertheless, because of inevitable hardware upgrades, or adding more capacity, the initial homogeneous platform will gradually evolve into heterogeneous as time passes by. The consequent performance heterogeneity is of concern to cloud users. In this paper, we evaluate performance variations from hardware heterogeneity and scheduling m... View full abstract»

    Power efficiency is one of the main issues that will drive the design of data centers, especially of those devoted to provide Cloud computing services. In virtualized data centers, consolidation of Virtual Machines (VMs) on the minimum number of physical servers has been recognized as a very efficient approach, as this allows unloaded servers to be switched off or used to accommodate more load, wh...
