Cooperative Cloud Computing in Research and Academic Environment using Virtual Cloud
|Name||Cooperative Cloud Computing in Research and Academic Environment using Virtual Cloud|
Cloud computing is becoming as a main choice computing paradigm for the enterprises. Use of cloud computing technologies is increasing by every passing day. It has great advantages of on-demand computing, scalability, proactive resource management, better application throughput, and enhanced security. Due to its openness and adaptability, it can be a good option for voluntary resource computing among non-profit organizations. In this paper, we present a model for cooperative cloud computing among research institutes and universities using Virtual Cloud concepts. The propose model of Cooperative Cloud Computing encompasses the concepts of cloud federation and volunteer computing and is based on our Virtual Cloud architecture. The cooperative cloud computing can be performed at a global scale among universities and research centers (institutes) located in different continents. In this model, institutes get benefited with a much higher computing power available through cloud federation.
