In this paper, a new approach for driving a better cloud computing IaaS Services is presented. This approach focuses on extending the available cloud computing platform infrastructure by harvesting underused generic computing resources that are widely available within public domains such as universities and organizations. Most of the current cloud computing platforms are mainly based on using a dedicating infrastructure to achieve the requested services. The proposed approach aims to improve the computing power for the cloud computing platform without charging any extra cost since generic machines are owned by the enterprise.
