Co-located with HiPC 2009, Kochi, India
Date: December 16, 2009
The Workshop on Utility and Grid Computing (WUGC) focuses on the technology and business models of virtualization, grid and utility computing.
One consumer-facing offering of massive grid infrastructure by utility providers is through cloud computing. At one level, computing clouds are massive third-party data centers that rent infrastructure, platform and business applications in “pay-as-you-go” mode and derive profits from their economies of scale. Getting almost instant access to massively scalable infrastructure at very low costs benefits the customers.
To have a successful cloud-hosting model, we believe that these data centers have to perform at an optimized level of resource virtualization and workload balancing through grid computing. Another important facet is the service-orientation of these computing models; modes for application development and service delivery, and so on.
The Workshop on Grid and Utility Computing (WIGC), like previous years, will focus on theory and practice on the technology and business models of virtualization, grid and utility computing. We seek original and unpublished research contributions on (but not limited to) categories like:
