This dissertation addresses three key challenges that are characteristic to the online scheduling of workloads of workflows in modern distributed computing systems. The first challenge is the realistic estimation of the resource demand of a workflow, as it is important for making good task placement and resource allocation decisions. Usually,...

Software as a Service (SaaS) is increasingly used by firms for sourcing business application software. SaaS can enable a cost reduction and quality improvement of existing operations and provide rapid and low-cost innovation. However, decision makers are unclear about how they can benefit from SaaS. This study contributes to filling this...

Nowadays, in order to keep track of the fast-changing requirements of Internet applications, auto-scaling is used as an essential mechanism for adapting the number of provisioned resources to the resource demand. The straightforward approach is to deploy a set of common and opensource single-service auto-scalers for each service independently....

Purpose: A large number of systematic reviews (SRs) studies have been performed in the cloud computing field, demonstrating miscellaneous outcomes and utilizing different approaches. Accordingly, a meta-review of cloud SRs is needed to appraise the results of such studies and create an integrated understanding. The paper aims to discuss these...

In the late-1950s, leasing time on an IBM 704 cost hundreds of dollars per minute. Today, cloud computing, that is, using IT as a service, on-demand and pay-per-use, is a widely used computing paradigm that offers large economies of scale. Born from a need to make platform as a service (PaaS) more accessible, fine-grained, and affordable,...

Running distributed applications in the cloud involves deployment. That is, distribution and configuration of application services and middleware infrastructure. The considerable complexity of these tasks resulted in the emergence of declarative JSON-based domain-specific deployment languages to develop deployment programs. However, existing...

Current 3D data capturing as implemented on for example airborne or mobile laser scanning systems is able to efficiently sample the surface of a city by billions of unselective points during one working day. What is still difficult is to extract and visualize meaningful information hidden in these point clouds with the same efficiency. This...

Rapid elasticity is one of the essential characteristics of cloud computing identified by NIST. Elasticity allows resources to be provisioned and released to scale rapidly out ward and in ward according to demand. Tens -- if not hundreds -- of algorithms have been proposed in the literature to automatically achieve elastic provisioning. These...

This paper presents the development of a multidisciplinary optimisation system for the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. The system consists of two major components, namely a multidisciplinary optimisation framework and a distributed cloud-based analysis framework. The former utilises an interactive optimisation search...

Designers interested in applying evo-devo-design methods for performance based multi-objective design exploration have typically faced two main hurdles: it’s too hard and too slow. An evo-devo-design method is proposed that effectively overcomes the hurdles of skill and speed by leveraging two key technologies: computational workflows and cloud...

Integration of analysis into early design phases in support of improved building performance has become increasingly important. It is considered a required response to demands on contemporary building design to meet environmental concerns. The goal is to assist designers in their decision making throughout the design of a building but with...

Owing to cloud computing Virtual Reality (cloud-VR), a note PC or tablet with no need for a high spec GPU can be used for sharing a 3D virtual space in a synchronous distributed type design meeting. This research investigates the users’ eye movements and optimization of the GUI of cloud-VR during a distributed and synchronized VR meeting....

The sourcing of cloud services is a relatively new type of service delivery model in which an organization gets access to IT services via a cloud service provider that is delivering services over the web to many users on a pay per use or period basis. Even though the importance of IT governance is often underlined, there is limited literature...

With the increasing adoption of distributed systems in both academia and industry, and with the increasing computational and storage requirements of distributed applications, users inevitably demand more from these systems. Moreover, users also depend on these systems for latency and throughput sensitive applications, such as interactive...

Software as a Service (SaaS) can be viewed as the fourth wave of outsourcing. SaaS is a relatively new type of service delivery model in which a service provider delivers its services over the web to many users on a pay per use or period basis. In the scarce literature available, the SaaS business model is almost always analyzed from the...

From the inception of the Oracle Spatial Engine over ten years ago, Oracle has been striving to make spatial information an integral part of its information management architecture. The Oracle information management architecture includes such areas as GIS, Document Management and Archiving and Business Intelligence. Built initially as disparate...

The study of the history of computing infrastructures reveals an integration trend. For example, the explosive growth of the Internet in the 1990s was the result of an integration process started in the 1960s with the emerging networks of computers. By using the Internet, millions of users were capable of accessing information anytime and...

Cloud services such as Facebook and Google search started to use personalization algorithms in order to deal with growing amount of data online. This is often done in order to reduce the “information overload”. User’s interaction with the system is recorded in a single identity, and the information is personalized for the user using this...
