STRATUS: Assembling Virtual Platforms from Device Clouds

Minsung Jang, Karsten Schwan
2011 2011 IEEE 4th International Conference on Cloud Computing  
By drawing on the composite resources of device clouds, applications can leverage the heterogeneity present in the cloud to exploit hardware/device differences in terms of power consumption, computational  ...  speeds, display sizes, or the presence of certain accelerators, and can take advantage of software diversity in terms of the different operating environments and applications that efficiently operate  ...  Further, platforms are elastic in terms of their capabilities and performance, where elasticity is obtained by modifying virtual to physical component mappings and existing virtual machine migration.  ...
