New Research Can Spot Cloud Computing Problems Before They Start
July 12, 2010
Large-scale computer hosting infrastructures offer a variety of services to computer users, including cloud computing. But when these infrastructures run into problems--like bottlenecks that slow their operating speed--it can be costly for both the infrastructure provider and the user. New research from North Carolina State University will allow these infrastructure providers to more accurately predict such anomalies, and address them before they become a major problem.
