A Manifesto for Future Generation Cloud Computing: Research Directions for the Next Decade November 23, 2018

Posted by Rajkumar Buyya in Uncategorized.

A team of international experts (from Australia, USA, Europe, Brazil, China, India) have put together a 2030 Research Agenda for Cloud computing. A paper on this is now published in ACM Computing Surveys (November 2018 issue) as:
A Manifesto for Future Generation Cloud Computing: Research Directions for the Next Decade

The Cloud computing paradigm has revolutionised the computer science horizon during the past decade and has enabled the emergence of computing as the fifth utility. It has captured significant attention of academia, industries, and government bodies. Now, it has emerged as the backbone of modern economy by offering subscription-based services anytime, anywhere following a pay-as-you-go model. This has instigated (1) shorter establishment times for start-ups, (2) creation of scalable global enterprise applications, (3) better cost-to-value associativity for scientific and high-performance computing applications, and (4) different invocation/execution models for pervasive and ubiquitous applications. The recent technological developments and paradigms such as serverless computing, software-defined networking, Internet of Things, and processing at network edge are creating new opportunities for Cloud computing. However, they are
also posing several new challenges and creating the need for new approaches and research strategies, as well as the re-evaluation of the models that were developed to address issues such as scalability, elasticity, reliability, security, sustainability, and application models. The proposed manifesto addresses them by identifying the major open challenges in Cloud computing, emerging trends, and impact areas. It then of-
fers research directions for the next decade, thus helping in the realisation of Future Generation Cloud Computing.
