„Advanced Research Issues for Elastic Computing“


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 in the form of human-based computing and software services into one composite system, which can be modeled, programmed, and deployed on a large scale in an elastic way.
