Intelligent Workload Factoring for a Hybrid Cloud Computing Model
Despite the hype, cloud computing still stays on IT managers' watching list. The hindrances to the adoption of public cloud computing services into enterprise IT include service reliability, security & data privacy, regulation compliant requirements, and so on. To address those concerns, one proposes a hybrid cloud computing model which enterprise customers may adopt as a viable and cost-saving methodology to make the best use of public cloud services along with their privately-owned (legacy) data centers. An intelligent workload factoring service is designed for this hybrid cloud computing model. It enables federation between on- and off-premise infrastructures for hosting an Internet-based application, and the intelligence lies in the explicit segregation of base workload and trespassing workload, the two naturally different components in application workload.
