Resource Management in Clouds: Survey and Research Challenges
Brendan Jennings and Rolf Stadler
In this paper, we survey the recent literature, covering 250+ publications, and highlighting key results. We out-line a conceptual framework for cloud resource management and use it to structure the state-of-the-art review. Based on our analysis, we identify ve challenges for fu-ture investigation. These relate to: providing predictable performance for cloud-hosted applications; achieving global manageability for cloud systems; engineering scalable re-source management systems; understanding economic behavior and cloud pricing; and developing solutions for the mobile cloud paradigm.
