Seamless Provision of Cloud Services Using Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Architecture
Cloud computing involves highly variable resource requirement that demands high availability, scalability and performance. At times, single cloud service provider would be saturated or running out of resources and may be unable to provide the services to its client, resulting in poor scalability and reliability. It may tarnish the trust parameter of customer. In addition, there is huge investment in setting up a single scalable cloud, which in turn has many environmental impacts. In this work, we propose an architecture to inter-connect different clouds in P2P fashion to address the problems like efficiency bottleneck and single point of failure that are predominantly associated with traditional approaches. This idea gives access to much larger pools of resources/services. Each provider can maximize their profit by creating new collaborative services. These capabilities can be available and tradable through a service catalogue to support innovations and applications.
