    How can applications be deployed on the cloud to achieve maximum performance? This question has become significant and challenging with the availability of a wide variety of Virtual Machines (VMs) with different performance ...
  • Cloud cover : monitoring large-scale clouds with Varanus 

    Ward, Jonathan Stuart; Barker, Adam David (2015-07-14) - Journal article
    Cloud computing has quickly become the de facto means to deploy large scale systems in a robust and cost effective manner. Central to the maintenance of large scale systems is monitoring which allows for the detection of ...
  • Cloud Services Brokerage : a survey and research roadmap 

    Barker, Adam David; Varghese, Blesson; Thai, Long Thanh (IEEE Computer Society, 2015-06-27) - Conference item
    A Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) acts as an intermediary between cloud service providers (e.g., Amazon and Google) and cloud service end users, providing a number of value adding services. CSBs as a research topic are in ...
  • Cloud-based e-Infrastructure for scheduling astronomical observations 

    Wetter, James Patrick; Akgun, Ozgur; Barker, Adam David; Dominik, Martin; Miguel, Ian James; Varghese, Blesson (IEEE Computer Society, 2015-08-31) - Conference item
    Gravitational microlensing exploits a transient phenomenon where an observed star is brightened due to deflection of its light by the gravity of an intervening foreground star. It is conjectured that this technique can be ...
  • Collaborative interaction on large tabletop displays 

    Carpendale, Sheelagh; Isenberg, Tobias; Scott, Stacey D.; Hinrichs, Uta; Miede, Andre; Kruger, Russell; Habelski, Stefan; Inkpen, Kori (2006-11-04) - Conference poster
