T-Check in System-of-Systems Technologies: Cloud Computing

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents the results of applying the T-Check method in an initial investigation of cloud computing. In this report, three hypotheses are examined: an organization can use its existing infrastructure simultaneously with cloud resources with relative ease; cloud computing environments provide ways to continuously update the amount of resources allocated to an organization; and it is possible to move an application's resources between cloud computing providers, with varying levels of effort required. From the T-Check investigation, the first hypothesis is partially sustained and the last two hypotheses are fully sustained within the context specified for the investigation.
