  • market-oriented cloud computing


This chapter introduces the fundamental concepts of market-oriented Cloud computing systems and presents a reference model. The model, together with the state-of-the-art technologies presented in the chapter, contribute significantly towards the mainstream adoption of Cloud computing technology. However, any technology brings with it new challenges and breakthroughs. The chapter focuses on the major challenges faced by the industry when adopting Cloud computing as a mainstream technology as part of the distributed computing paradigm. It presents a utility-oriented Cloud vision that is a generic model for realizing market-oriented Cloud computing vision. Cloudbus realized this by developing various tools and platforms that can be used individually or together as an integrated solution. The author's demonstrate through experiments that their toolkit can provide applications based on deadline, optimize cost and time of applications, and manage real-world problems through an integrated solution.
