QoS Management in Cloud@Home Infrastructures
Cloud is strongly emerging as the new deal of distributed computing. One of the reasons behind the Cloud success is its business/commercial-oriented nature, proof of its effectiveness and applicability to real problems. There are actually a lot of open-private Cloud infrastructures aiming at providing dynamic-on demand resource provisioning ac-cording to the IAAS paradigm. To this purpose they usually apply a best effort policy, without taking into account Service Level Agreements (SLA) and related Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. In such a context, the main goal of Cloud@Home is to implement a volunteer-Cloud paradigm which allows to aggregate Cloud infrastructure providers.
