Cloud computers and multicore processors are two emerging classes of computational hardware that have the potential to provide unprecedented compute capacity to the average user. Cloud computing is a disruptive paradigm, enabling new business models and new technological approaches to providing services over the internet. While the basic Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) capabilities quickly become a commodity, quality of service guarantees typically associated with 'traditional' hosting environments, such as performance, availability, and security guarantees become differentiating factors. In order for the user to effectively harness all of this computational power, Operating Systems (OSs) for these new hardware platforms are needed.
