Abstract

This project is mainly for research and development of cloud computing technologies, such as IaaS, storage as a service etc. Our project website is http://www.ucgrid.org/. We benchmark cloud deployment through Xen KVM, test workflows on virtual OS for performance. We also test cloud computing packages like Eucalyptus, Nimbus and Open Nebula along with our own scripts to deploy virtual OS.
