Free registration required

Executive Summary

Scientific applications require large computing power, traditionally exceeding the available within the premises of a single institution. Therefore, clouds can be used to provide extra resources whenever required. For this vision to be achieved; however, it is required both policies defining when and how cloud resources are allocated to applications and a platform implementing not only these policies but also the whole software stack supporting management of applications and resources. Aneka is a cloud application platform capable of provisioning resources obtained from a variety of sources including private and public clouds, clusters, grids, and desktops grids.
