Resource Management in Cloud Computing

Speaker:  Shrisha Rao – Bangalore, India
Topic(s):  Computational Theory, Algorithms and Mathematics


Cloud computing is an increasingly popular paradigm of offering services over the Internet; it is also an active area of research. One key area that calls for innovative approaches, is proper resource management.  Considering that cloud systems are very large in size and business value (and will probably get only larger over time), and serve very large numbers of users, proper management of cloud resources is not a trivial concern.  Resource management issues are not very simple, and improved solutions are likely to bring large financial and other benefits to both users and vendors of cloud systems.

This talk deals with the formulation and basic understanding of solutions to problems such as the following: How can cloud resources be allocated efficiently cloud vendors, given a multi-tiered business system on which user demands are time-varying?  How can cloud services be metered in a time-varying way (rather than at a fixed rate that takes no account of changing conditions) to bring advantages to both cloud vendors and cloud users?
