An SLA-based Broker for Cloud Infrastructures

The breakthrough of Cloud comes from its service oriented perspective where everything, including the infrastructure, is provided "As a service". This model is really attractive and convenient for both providers and consumers; as a consequence the Cloud paradigm is quickly growing and widely spreading, also in non commercial contexts. In such a scenario, the authors propose to incorporate some elements of volunteer computing into the Cloud paradigm through the Cloud@Home solution, involving into the mix nodes and devices provided by potentially any owners or administrators, disclosing high computational resources to contributors and also allowing maximizing their utilization.
