A key advantage of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds is providing users on-demand access to resources. Though, to provide on-demand access, cloud providers must either significantly overprovision their infrastructure (and pay a high price for operating resources with low utilization) or reject a large proportion of user requests (in which case the access is no longer on-demand). At the equal time, not all users require truly on-demand access to resources. Many workflows and applications are designed for recoverable systems where interruptions in service are expected.
