Paper at Intercloud workshop
I will be there from Monday 4th to Friday 8th, in case anyone wants to discuss distributed cloud around a German lager.
The paper discusses the economical viability of distributed IaaS infrastructures composed of hundreds to thousands of micro/nano data-centers. We identify possible actors, introduce qualitative metrics to describe the infrastructures each can produce, and give a cost model. We instantiate the cost model for three actors and compare the cost of the VM they can prodive with those Amazon does.
This work is part of and funded by the Discovery Initiative that I encourage you to check out.
See you in Berlin!
