May/June 2016

Cloud computing continues to grow in complexity due to both the increasing availability of configuration options from public cloud providers and the increasing variability and types of application instances that can be deployed on such platforms. This complexity is also evident in the enterprise-scale datacenters that dominate computing infrastructures in industry, leading to complex business applications and workflows. Autonomic computing enables self-management of systems and applications. The underlying concepts and mechanisms of autonomics can be applied to each component within a cloud (resource manager/scheduler, power manager, and so on) as well as to the cloud as a whole, or they can be applied within an application that makes use of such a cloud. Additionally, autonomics can play a critical role as applications explore dynamic federations of cloud infrastructure and services.

Guest Editors' Introduction: Special Issue on Autonomic Clouds

Here, the guest editors introduce the articles in this special issue, which explores the role of autonomic computing concepts and practices in managing cloud infrastructure and applications.

EIC's Introduction: Networking and the Cloud

The network has always had a critical role in computing, especially in the era of the Internet and, at present, in the age of cloud computing, Internet of Things, smart mobility, and big data. In this issue, columns and departments looks at various aspects of networking and the cloud, including software-defined networking, network support for cloud infrastructures, and the economics of cloud networks. Read this article from IEEE Cloud Computing magazine here.
