Abstract
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing provides the ability to elastically provision and relinquish new resources in response to changes in demand.In our work, we develop a model of an “elastic site” that efficiently adapts services provided within a site, such as batch schedulers, storage archives.To avoid over- or under-provisioning the resources we propose three different policies to efficiently schedule resource deployment based on demand.
Use of FutureSystems
We require the use of nimbus toolkit and nimbuscloud for our project and hence this can be done through futuregrid portal.
Scale of Use
8GB RAM, 100GB harddisk,5 virtual machines for a period of 45 days(till april 30th 2012)
