SIMULATION MODELLING PRACTICE AND THEORY: Special Issue on “Modeling and Simulation of Hybrid Clouds”
As cloud computing continues to gain momentum, a wide range of applications moved to the cloud. Issues involved with this paradigm shift, such as security and cost, resulted in the adoption of hybrid clouds, especially by organizations with large on-premise infrastructure investments.
A hybrid cloud is a combination of private and public clouds.
It provides the best of both worlds, a balanced control on performance and security.
Applications in hybrid clouds can move between private and public clouds for flexibility and efficient deployment. Additional public cloud resources can be utilized for outsourcing applications when private resources cannot cope with the workload.
However, the adoption of hybrid clouds entails many challenges, such as QoS and security-aware workload offloading, cost-efficient public cloud utilization, effective resource management and load balancing.
The scope of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the-art research covering a variety of concepts in hybrid clouds, particularly focused on modelling, simulation and performance evaluation of such platforms.
Papers for the Special Issue must provide a substantial novel contribution, and authors must carefully situate their work with regard to the relevant scientific literature. They must clearly address research issues of Hybrid Clouds and show the role of modeling and simulation in this research area.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Performance evaluation and modeling of hybrid clouds
- Enterprise applications and services in hybrid clouds
- Real-time applications in hybrid clouds
- Storage and data architectures in hybrid clouds
- Resource management, load balancing and scheduling in hybrid clouds
- Security and privacy in hybrid clouds
- Cost-saving strategies in hybrid clouds
- Big data analytics in hybrid clouds
- Energy efficiency of hybrid cloud infrastructures
- Hybrid clouds integration with fog computing, the Internet of Things and multi-clouds
