Differentiated Leases for Infrastructure-as-a-Service
A common problem in on-demand IaaS clouds is utilization: in order to ensure on-demand availability providers have to ensure that there are available resources waiting for a request to come. To do that, they either have to significantly overprovision resources (in which case they experience low utilization) or reject a large proportion of requests (in which case the cloud is not really on-demand). The question arises: how can we combine best of both worlds?
