Abstract

Effectively using, managing and harnessing the data is the key to the success of organizations in the time to come. We propose a cloud architecture that uses donation based resources in a network & helps multiple organizations to collaborate and yet compete with each other. The resources are utilized non intrusively. Organizations collaborate to create a Data-centre, that doesn’t harm their existence or profitability. At the same time, these organizations can compete by spreading to those locations where they carry certain edge over others. This is where an ad-hoc cloud in heterogeneous environment helps to venture into remote areas with. To achieve this, ad-hoc cloud architecture is proposed along with issues and strategies.
