Cloud computing paradigm provides virtualized computing resources as a service on demand. This paradigm allows companies focus on their business issues rather than conceiving and managing complex infrastructures. As a consequence, performance evaluation of cloud computing infrastructures has been receiving considerable attention by service providers as a prominent activity for improving service quality infrastructure planning, and selection of software platforms (e.g., Eucalyptus). This paper presents the performance evaluation of virtual machines on Eucalyptus platform considering different workloads.
