Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing has emerged as an attractive alternative to the acquisition and management of physical resources. The on-demand provisioning it supports allows users to elastically expand and contract the resource base available to them based on an immediate need – a pattern that enables a quick turnaround time when dealing with emergencies, working towards deadlines, or growing an institutional resource base. We demonstrate that a shared infrastructure between IaaS cloud providers and an HTC job management system can be highly beneficial to both the IaaS cloud provider and HTC users by increasing the utilization of the cloud infrastructure (thereby decreasing the overall cost) and contributing cycles that would otherwise be idle to processing HTC jobs.

Intellectual Merit

The previous work on this project claims that the cloud utilization increases from 37.5% to 100% during a portion of the evaluation trace but the termination of HTC task will waste the CPU cycles. So claiming the 100% utilization is not technically correct because the the termination HTC jobs have to be started form start.

Broader Impacts

So for this loop whole in this project is full filled by suspending the HTC jobes. When we suspend the process rather than the termination then we can say that we are enhance our work to full extend.

Scale of Use

I need VMs for an experiment to conduct
