ATMOSPHERE was presented at the IEEE 12th International Conference on Cloud Computing, from 8th till 13th July, Milan (Italy). The IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD) has been a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of cloud computing, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of cloud computing. All topics regarding cloud computing align with the theme of CLOUD.
ATMOSPHERE project presented a paper that evaluates a utility-based strategy that balances spot instance cost and availability to Amazon EC2 users
The paper, entitled "Utility-Based Strategy for Balanced Cost and Availability at the Cloud Spot Market", describes experiments that show that, with Amazon EC2 cloud provider, the average availability reaches up to 98% for spot instances, using data gathered from Amazon (September to November 2016), and a bid value below 28% of the on demand price for the m4.10xlarge general purpose instance type.
