Providing Dependability and Performance in the Cloud: Case Studies
Cloud Computing promises a variety of opportunities but also brings up several challenges. The three case studies presented in the following are examples on how challenges in the field of capacity management, dependability, and scalability can be addressed and how opportunities of Cloud Computing can be leveraged to, e.g., maintain performance requirements or to increase dependability.
