Design of an Accounting and Metric-Based Cloud-Shifting and Cloud-Seeding Framework for Federated Clouds and Bare-Metal Environments

The authors present the design of a dynamic provisioning system that is able to manage the resources of a federated cloud environment by focusing on their utilization. With their framework, it is not only possible to allocate resources at a particular time to a specific Infrastructure as a Service framework, but also to utilize them as part of a typical HPC environment controlled by batch queuing systems. Through this interplay between virtualized and non-virtualized resources, they provide a flexible resource management framework that can be adapted based on users' demands.
