Abstract

The advent of Cloud computing offers different ways both to sell and buy resources and services according to a pay-per-use model. Thanks to virtualization technology, different Cloud providers supplying costeffective services provided in form of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) have been rising. Currently, there is another perspective which represents a further business opportunity for small/medium providers known as Cloud Federation. In fact, the Cloud ecosystem includes hundreds of independent and heterogeneous cloud providers, and a possible future alternative scenario is represented by the promotion of cooperation among them, thus enabling the sharing of computational and storage resources. In this paper, we specifically discuss an analysis of the requirements for the establishment of an IaaS Cloud Federation. Copyright © 2014 SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications.
