[Open position] Two PhD research fellowships within cloud computing (EU MC-ITN project CleanSky)
To ensure efficiency in cloud computing, it is crucial to explore fundamental resource allocation and optimization technologies to achieve best trade-off between implementation cost and cloud service quality. The objective of the project is to develop a multi-objective optimization framework for the optimization and consolidation of data center resources, taking different dimensions in mind (e.g., energy, storage, computation, application dependency, communication and associated costs) to bring down the costs while still meeting application requirements.
The specific tasks include (1) studying the characteristics of the key affecting factors such as energy, storage, computation, application dependency, and communication, (2) establishing the relationships between these factors, the cloud service performance and the cost, and (3) based on these relationships, applying optimization to obtain the best trade-off between cost and performance.
When a telecom provider offers its own cloud services to its customers, it may federate cloud services from other providers. As such, there is a need for the telecom provider to compose services with reliable Service-Level Agreement (SLA) and to dynamically adjust (the subscription to) the underlying cloud services to maximize the revenue. The objective of the project is to develop results for provisioning and management of cloud services that are both robust and cost-efficient meeting service level agreement (SLA). The specific tasks include (1) Identifying the effect of service compositions and failures on SLA; (2) Proposing cloud composition strategies with maximal cost-efficient service availability; (3) Developing solutions for robust cloud service provisioning and management.
