Executive Summary

Cloud computing is an emerging distributed computing paradigm that promises to offer cost-effective scalable on-demand services to users, without the need for large up-front infrastructure investments. A key enabling technology for cloud computing is virtualization. With virtualization, service providers can ensure isolation of multiple user workloads, provision resources in a cost-effective manner by consolidating Virtual Machines (VMs) onto fewer physical resources when system load is low, and quickly scale up workloads to more physical resources in peak periods.
