Executive Summary

The Cloud is fast gaining popularity as a platform for deploying Software as a Service (SaaS) applications. In principle, the Cloud provides unlimited compute resources, enabling deployed services to scale seamlessly. Moreover, the pay-as-you-go model in the Cloud reduces the maintenance overhead of the applications. Given the advantages of the Cloud, it is attractive to migrate existing software to this new platform. However, challenges remain as most software applications need to be redesigned to embrace the Cloud. In this paper, the authors present an overview of their current on-going work in developing epiC - an elastic and efficient power-aware data-intensive Cloud system.
