Project description
Cloud computing has emerged as a new operational model for hosting and delivering services over the Internet. Cloud computing promises to provide computing resources instantly, whenever they are needed. Supporting the on-demand provisioning of resources, requires elastic resource allocation to minimize provisioning costs while meeting service level objectives (SLOs). Elastic resource allocation allows for optimal provisioning, which yields cost reduction for a service provider. The challenge of an elastic resource allocation solution for a service provider requires avoiding two situations as: Under-provisioning and Over-provisioning. The goal of my research project is to design, implement and comparatively evaluate experimental proactive elastic resource allocation algorithms, which could be used by cloud service provider to address the mentioned challenge.
