Principles and Methods for Elastic Computing

Schahram Dustdar, Vienna University of Technology


Presentation slides

Elasticity is seen as one of the main characteristics of Cloud Computing today. Is elasticity simply scalability on steroids? In this talk I will discuss the main principles of elasticity, present a fresh look at this problem, and examine how to integrate people, software services, and things into one composite system, which can be modeled, programmed, and deployed on a large scale in an elastic way.
