Cloud computing

Cloud Computing is an emerging computing platform collecting under a unique umbrella several research results from the areas of Grid Computing, Hardware and Network Virtualization, and Data Centers administration.  Research in  Cloud Computing goes towards the goal of realizing the ambitious "computing as an utility" paradigm through public clouds, but also aims at improving private and community cloud infrastructures to answer the peculiar needs of many industrial realities. 

Challenges in Cloud Computing are the improvement of  allocation algorithms for virtual machines and virtual networks, QoS provisioning and SLA enforcement for cloud users, enabling interoperability between different cloud vendors through the development of standards for cloud federations.
