Deploying Distributed Cloud Infrastructures: Who and at What Cost?

Anthony Simonet, Adrien Lebre, Anne-Cecile Orgerie
2016 2016 IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering Workshop (IC2EW)  
Academics and industry experts are now advocating for going from large-centralized Cloud Computing (CC) infrastructures to smaller ones massively distributed at the edge of the network.  ...  In this article, we go beyond the state of the art of the current cost model of DCC infrastructures. First, we provide a classification of the different ways of deploying DCC platforms.  ...  To address the question of who could deploy a DCC infrastructure and at what cost, we proposed a classification of possible actors in the DCC market and a detailed cost model for providing virtual machines  ...
