Talk: Market-Oriented Cloud Computing and the Aneka Platform by Prof Rajkumar Buyya

You are cordially invited to attend the following talk by Prof Rajkumar Buyya, The University of Melbourne, Australia.

Date: 23 April (Monday)
Time: 1pm-2pm (1 hour)
Venue: FES 6th floor Meeting Room (west room), UTAR KL Campus, Setapak, Kuala Lumpur.
Speaker: Professor Rajkumar Buyya, The University of Melbourne, Australia; CEO, Manjrasoft Pvt Ltd, Melbourne, Australia
Title: Market-Oriented Cloud Computing and the Aneka Platform

Abstract 
Computing  is  being  transformed  to  a  model  consisting  of  services  that  are  commoditised  and delivered  in  a  manner  similar  to  utilities  such  as  water,  electricity,  gas,  and  telephony.  In  such  a  model,  users  access  services  based  on  their  requirements  without  regard  to  where  the  services  are  hosted.  Several  computing  paradigms  have  promised  to  deliver  this  utility  computing  vision.  Cloud  computing  is  the  most  recent  emerging  paradigm  promising  to  turn  the  vision of "computing utilities" into a reality.

Cloud  computing  has  emerged  as  one  of  the  buzzwords  in  the  ICT  industry. Several  IT  vendors  are  promising  to  offer  storage,  computation  and  application  hosting  services,  and  provide  coverage  in  several  continents,  offering  Service-Level  Agreements  (SLA)  backed  performance  and  uptime  promises  for  their  services.  It  delivers  infrastructure,  platform,  and  software  (application)  as  services,  which  are  made  available  as  subscription-based  services  in  a  pay-as-you-go  model  to  consumers.   The  price  that  Cloud  Service  Providers  charge  can vary with time and the quality of service (QoS) expectations of consumers.

This  talk
(1)  presents  the  21st  century  vision  of  computing  and identifies  various  IT  paradigms  promising  to  deliver  the  vision  of computing  utilities;
(2)  defines  the  architecture  for  creating market-oriented  Clouds  by  leveraging  technologies  such  as  VMs;
(3)  provides  thoughts  on  market-based  resource  management  strategies  that  encompass  both  customer-driven  service  management  and  computational  risk  management  to  sustain  SLA-oriented  resource  allocation;
(4)  presents  Aneka,  a  software  system  for  rapid  development  of  Cloud  applications  and  their  deployment  on  private/public Clouds  with  resource  provisioning  driven  by  SLAs  and  user  QoS  requirements,
(5)  reports  experimental  results  on  deploying  Cloud  applications  in  engineering,  gaming,  and  health  care  domains  on  private  or  public  Clouds,  and
(6)  concludes  with  the  need  for  convergence  of  competing  IT  paradigms  for  delivering  our  21st  century vision along with pathways for future research.


Speaker Bio 

Dr.  Rajkumar  Buyya  is  Professor  of  Computer  Science  and  Software  Engineering; and Director of the Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS)  Laboratory at  the  University  of  Melbourne,  Australia.  He  is  also  serving  as  the  founding CEO  of  Manjrasoft.,  a  spin-off  company  of  the  University,  commercializing  its innovations  in  Cloud  Computing.  He  has  authored  350  publications  and  four  text books.  He  also  edited  several  books  including  "Cloud  Computing:  Principles  and Paradigms"  (Wiley  Press,  USA,  Feb  2011).  He  is  one  of  the  highly  cited  authors  in  computer  science  and  software  engineering  worldwide  (h-index=61,  g-index=126,  17900+ citations).

Software  technologies  for  Grid  and  Cloud  computing  developed  under  Dr.  Buyya's leadership  have  gained  rapid  acceptance  and  are  in  use  at  several  academic institutions  and  commercial  enterprises  in  40  countries  around  the  world.  Dr. Buyya  has  led  the  establishment  and  development  of  key  community  activities, including  serving  as  foundation  Chair  of  the  IEEE  Technical  Committee  on
Scalable  Computing  and  five  IEEE/ACM  conferences.  These  contributions  and international  research  leadership  of  Dr.  Buyya  are  recognized  through  the  award of "2009 IEEE Medal for Excellence in Scalable Computing" from the IEEE Computer Society,  USA.  Manjrasoft’s  Aneka  Cloud  technology  developed  under  his  leadership has  received  "2010  Asia  Pacific  Frost  &  Sullivan  New  Product  Innovation  Award"  and  "2011  Telstra  Innovation  Challenge,  People's  Choice  Award".  For  further
