Cloud Infrastructure Utilization

key advantage of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds is providing users on-demand access to resources. However, to provide on-demand access, cloud providers must either significantly overprovision their infrastructure (and pay a high price for operating resources with low utilization) or reject a large proportion of user requests (in which case the access is no longer on-demand). At the same time, not all users require truly on-demand access to resources. Many applications and workflows are designed for recoverable systems where interruptions in service are expected. We propose a cloud infrastructure that combines on-demand allocation of resources with opportunistic provisioning of cycles from idle cloud nodes to other processes.

Intellectual Merit

It provides utilization infratructure usage from 37.5% to 100% Note support email From: Girish Bhole via RT [] Sent: Friday, April 25, 2014 10:38 AM Subject: [ #4947] Re: Rahul Limbole To FutureGrid Support Mr. Rahul Limbole is a Masters student at our institute "VJTI" . He wants to use Future Grid facility for his project work. I shall be very much thankful if FutureGrid Provides him access to its resources. This will be of great help to Rahul to complete his project work. I strongly recommend to grant access to resources of FutureGrid. Thanks and Regards

Broader Impacts

It will improve the utilization infrastructre in cloud
