Cloud Computing has emerged rapidly as an exciting new paradigm that offers a challenging model of cyber-physical services and poses fascinating problems regarding distributed resource management, ranging from information sharing to cooperative computing.
This special issue is intended to foster state-of-the-art research in the area of cloud computing technologies and services, including the topics of collaboration environment, implementation and execution of real-world architectures, and novel applications associated with this new paradigm. The published papers are expected to present high quality results for tackling problems arising from the ever-growing cloud computing technologies. The issue will serve as a landmark source for education, information, and reference to professors, researchers and graduate students interested in updating their knowledge about or active in cloud computing technologies and services. In addition, it will also collect some of the best papers from the 10th International Symposium on Pervasive Computing, Algorithms and Networks (I-SPAN 2009).
Areas of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Cloud architectures and modelling
- Services modelling, composition and delivery in cloud systems
- Resource management for cloud systems
- Case studies and application
- Trustworthiness, security and privacy for cloud systems
- Services integration and management in cloud systems
- Optimal deployment configuration
- Consistency models
- Virtualisation technologies
- Middleware frameworks
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Hardware as a Service (HaaS)
- Web services
- Fault tolerance and reliability
- Utility computing
