Cloud computing has emerged as a new IT delivery model in which an organization or individual can rent remote compute and storage resources dynamically, using a credit card, to host networked applications \"In the cloud\". In this paper, the authors present Kingfisher, a cost-aware system that provides efficient support for elasticity in the cloud by leveraging multiple mechanisms to reduce the time to transition to new configurations and optimizing the selection of a virtual server configuration that minimizes the cost. They have implemented a prototype of Kingfisher and have evaluated its efficacy on a laboratory cloud platform.
