Cloud computing is a novel computing paradigm which has changed the way enterprise or INTERNET computing used to be seen. Cloud Computing as a term was first coined by John McArthy of IBM in 1960s where he envisaged that “computing” power will be used as an utility one day. Today, for almost all the sectors in the world, cloud computing is synonym to their IT implementations. Today, public cloud market share is expected to reach $240bn by the end of year 2016. The success story of cloud computing as a technology is credited to the long term efforts of computing research community across the globe. SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) are the three major cloud product sectors. Each one of these product sectors have their effects and reach to various industries. If forecasts are to be believed than more than two third of all the enterprises across the globe will be entirely run in cloud by 2026. These enthusiastic figures have led to huge fund generation for research and development in cloud computing and related technologies. University researchers, research labs in industry and scholars across the globe have recreated the whole computing world into a new cloud enabled world. This has been only possible by coordinated efforts into this direction. Today, almost every university across the globe having computer science curriculum have incorporated cloud computing and its related technologies into their curriculum. Additionally, there are extensive efforts on innovation and technology creation in the direction of cloud computing. These efforts are much visible in the reputed cloud computing research platforms like International conferences and journals.
We, the editors of the book have also started contributing in this niche computing area since its inception. Prof. Rajkumar Buyya is one of the most cited and visible researcher in the area with more than 43,000 citations in the area of cloud computing and distributed systems (http://www.buyya.com/). He has been one of the pioneers in the area to bring glory to the field by contributing to multiple facets of development of cloud computing technologies and their implementations. Additionally, Prof. Buyya has been the founding editor-in-chief of the most prestigious journal in the “IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing (TCC)” due to his long list of contributions in the area. The other two editors of the book also have strong contributions in the area of resource allocation and cloud computing security and have highly cited research work. One of their works related to cloud computing resource allocation has been among the most cited articles on Elsevier Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS).
We as editors, feel that there is a significant need to systematically collect and present quality research findings in the area of recent advances in cloud computing area to give wide benefit to a huge community of researchers, educators, practitioners and industries. Even though there are large numbers of journals and conferences available in the area to showcase ones research contribution in the area of cloud computing. However, there is a lack of comprehensive and in-depth tutored analysis on many of the research areas in the field of cloud computing. The proposed book on “Research Advances in Cloud Computing” will be an edited volume of having chapters from various top trends, designs, implementations, outcomes and directions in the various areas of cloud computing. We have planned the book in the form of around 16 to 18 chapters each expected to be 20 to 25 pages dedicated to various facets of cloud computing.
Book Type: The book will have edited chapters focusing on research topics related to cloud computing.
Aim and Scope
The major aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive base to the recent research and open problems in the area of cloud computing research. We have felt that it is the much-needed ingredient to the researchers/ scholars who are about to start their research in the emerging area. State of the art problems, present solutions, and open research directions will always be positively welcomed by all the research groups, post-graduate programs, Doctoral programs around the globe in computer science and information technology.
This book will provide a comprehensive aid to prospective researchers and scholars who are considering working in this area. Being an emerging area, cloud computing and related technology have been become a matter of extreme interest of budding researchers in the area. This book is aimed to provide a complete sketch towards all the research areas, recent works and open research problems in cloud computing. Collecting and streamlining all these works in a single book requires large collaborative efforts from the community across the globe. This has also been envisaged that this book will continue to become a source of large interest for the time to come and would require adaptations time to time.
The book aims to systematically collect and present quality research findings in the area of recent advances in cloud computing area to give wide benefit to a huge community of researchers, educators, practitioners and industries. Submissions are solicited on the following topics, but not limited to:
• Cloud Applications and Challenges
• Cloud Architecture and Management
• Cloud Inter-operability and Federated Clouds
• Cloud Security
• Data Analytics on Cloud platforms
• Energy-efficient / Green Cloud Computing environments
• Infrastructure Cloud and Performance
• Performance Issues of Cloud Computing
• Platform services and related aspects
• Pricing and Economics
• Resource Allocation in Cloud Computing
Note: in case of multiple submissions in the same area or topic, the best chapter will be selected.
