In our seventh year of SMTPS, we would like to invite the pioneers in computing resource management and discuss the latest ideas, with a special focus on cloud computing. With advent of virtualization technologies, efficient and effective systems management plays an even more critical role to deal with the ever-increasing computing resources and their connectivity and complexity. The cloud computing paradigm has been introduced to better respond to dynamic computation demand by emerging applications and workload, and to better utilize computing resources and energy in aggregation to serve a large group of users.
Many issues in systems management within a traditional computing environment remain challenging for cloud computing. For instance, system administrators for both traditional and cloud systems are required to provide satisfactory and continuous services to applications even in the presence of interrupts and system failures. On the other hand, there are new challenges and opportunities posed by cloud computing, which call for different solutions. Management of computing infrastructure, platform and software are redefined to be part of online service offerings, commonly termed as infrastructure as a service and software as a service. Management of future datacenters with tens of thousands of severs, a wide variety of middleware, and emerging web portals brings in new challenges for tomorrow's system administrators and architects.
This workshop is intended to bring together researchers and practitioners to define and discuss the issues and challenges and share early findings in systems management in the emerging cloud computing paradigm. Topics of interest include, and are not limited to:
Topics of interest include, and are not limited to:
Scalable resource management solutions
Cloud resource provisioning with QoS
High availability with failure detection, prediction, and recovery
Identity, metering, and privacy in Cloud
Management of virtualized resources
Workload and resource scheduling
Network delivery of IT services
Mobile cloud computing
Streaming in could computing
Cloud services for enterprise applications
Results of both theoretical and practical significance will be considered including other related interesting topics in their infancy. Accepted papers will be published in the IPDPS'11 proceedings.
