Developing Interoperable and Federated Cloud Architecture

Book Description

As cloud technology continues to advance and be utilized, many service providers have begun to employ multiple networks, or cloud federations; however, as the popularity of these federations increases, so does potential utilization challenges. Developing Interoperable and Federated Cloud Architecture provides valuable insight into current and emergent research occurring within the field of cloud infrastructures. Featuring barriers, recent developments, and practical applications on the interoperability issues of federated cloud architectures, this book is a focused reference for administrators, developers, and cloud users interested in energy awareness, scheduling, and federation policies and usage.
