When Free Is Not Really Free: What Does It Cost to Run a Database Workload in the Cloud? [chapter]

Avrilia Floratou, Jignesh M. Patel, Willis Lang, Alan Halverson
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Thus, what we need is a method for the end-user to get an accurate estimate of the true costs that will be incurred without worrying about the nuances of how the DaaS operates.  ...  One potential solution to this problem is for DaaS providers to offer a new service called Benchmark as a Service (BaaS) where in the user provides the parameters of their workload and SLA requirements  ...  This research was supported in part by a grant from the Microsoft Jim Gray Systems Lab, Madison, WI, and by the National Science Foundation under grant IIS-0963993.  ...

Cloud Computing Environment

Harshita Doad, Dr. Trilok Gupta
2021 IJARCCE  
The word cloud is used as a metaphor for internet and a standardized cloud like shape was used to denote a network on schematic's. [1] Cloud is about where you compute, not how you compute.  ...  The data usage has been discussed providing a large dependency in processing the programs. The future introduction is also mentioned giving new research aspects to the field of cloud computing.  ...  Inside the session one is free to operate it as the user wanted.  ...

The Case for Drill-Ready Cloud Computing

Tanakorn Leesatapornwongsa, Haryadi S. Gunawi
2014 Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing - SOCC '14  
A viable solution is to sample some requests to participate in a drill, for example based on some domain-specific workload classification (e.g., sample free customers but not the paying ones).  ...  As a result, this method is only accepted "psychologically", but not practically. That is, many believe it is important but few really make it a common practice.  ...

Gordon Blair, Fabio Kon, Walfredo Cirne, Dejan Milojicic, Raghu Ramakrishnan, Dan Reed, Dilma Silva
2011 Journal of Internet Services and Applications  
The public cloud makes it possible for anybody to create a new cloud service business at a very low cost.  ...  So, I can only see the motivation of a private cloud for (i) a very large organization that finds cost advantages in running a private cloud for its many application development teams, and decides that  ...  Raghu Ramakrishnan is Chief Scientist for Search and Cloud Platforms at Yahoo!, and is a Yahoo! Fellow, heading the Web Information Management research group.  ...

A Tenant-based Resource Allocation Model Application in a Public Cloud

2015 Acta Polytechnica Hungarica  
The tenant-based resource allocation model proved to decrease system's running costs. It also reduces system resource underutilization.  ...  The SaaS application is typically accessed by the users via a web browser. It is the top layer in cloud computing stack.  ...  What is also important is that we do not pay for any inbound traffic to our cloud resources. It does not matter whether the transfer IN comes from our other resources or from the Internet.  ...

Analysis on Cloud Computing Database in Cloud Environment – Concept and Adoption Paradigm

Elena-Geanina ULARU, Florina PUICAN, Manole VELICANU
2012 Database Systems Journal  
Such a concept is "the Cloud". Various marketing campaigns have started to focus on the Cloud and began to promote it in different but confusing ways.  ...  This campaigns do little, to explain what cloud computing is and why it is becoming increasingly necessary.  ...  The customer does not purchase software licenses. The infrastructure cost, the maintenance, the rights to use software support are all gathered in a monthly payment or pay as use service.  ...

Paracloud: Bringing Application Insight into Cloud Operations

Shripad Nadgowda, Sahil Suneja, Canturk Isci
2017 USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Computing  
Applications have commonly been oblivious to their cloud runtimes. This is primarily because they started their journey in IaaS clouds, running on a guestOS inside VMs.  ...  Applications are increasingly being on-boarded to PaaS clouds in the form of application containers or appc, where they are run directly on a cloud substrate like Kubernetes or Docker Swarm.  ...  In this case, the container does not initiate a hotScale. As a result cold scaling is applied, which improves performance by reducing latency by 20%.  ...

A Decision Support System for Moving Workloads to Public Clouds

Mohammad Firoj Mithani, Michael A. Salsburg, Shrisha Rao
2010 GSTF International Journal on Computing  
Cloud computing really comes into focus only when you think about what IT always needs: a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new IT infrastructure/hardware, training  ...  Providing resource on demand at cost effective pricing is not the only criteria when determining if a business service workload can be moved to a public cloud.  ...
