Achieving Federated and Self-Manageable Cloud Infrastructures

Book Description

Cloud computing presents a promising approach for implementing scalable information and communications technology systems for private and public, individual, community, and business use.<br><div><br></div><div><b>Achieving Federated and Self-Manageable Cloud Infrastructures: Theory and Practice</b> overviews current developments in cloud computing concepts, architectures, infrastructures and methods, focusing on the needs of small to medium enterprises. The topic of cloud computing is addressed on two levels: the fundamentals of cloud computing and its impact on the IT world; and an analysis of the main issues regarding the cloud federation, autonomic resource management, and efficient market mechanisms, while supplying an overview of the existing solutions able to solve them. This publication is aimed at both enterprise business managers and research and academic audiences alike.</div>
