Abstract—Cloud computing is the emerging computing platform by providing the computing utilities as service such as platform, software and storage. By the latest advancements in Information and Communications Technology last previous half century, there is an increasing perceived vision that computing is going be the 5th most wanted utility after electricity, telephony, gas, and water. The computing utility is like all other four necessary utilities. It will provide the basic level of computing service that is assumed essential to meet the everyday needs of the general public. In this paper, we define Cloud computing and included the architecture for creating Clouds with market-oriented resource allocation by latest technologies like Virtual Machines. We also provide insights on market-based resource management techniques that encompass both customer-driven service management and computational risk management to sustain Service Level Agreement oriented resource allocation. Finally, we conclude with the need of IT technologies to deliver our current vision of computing.
Index Terms—Virtual machines, SLA, CDN system etc.
