The development of a framework for building cloud computing infrastructure could improve high-performance computing services from the Internet to multiple clients. Andrzej Goscinski, a professor from Deakin University's School of Information Technology who is leading a team on such a project, says cloud computing would become more accessible, reliable, and efficient. Infrastructure that broadens the use of cloud computing could lead to standards that also would impact the cloud computing marketplace.
Cloud computing still does not offer an easily accessible directory of its resources, and it also is difficult to determine the quality of the service and how resources are managed, Goscinski says. "We are able to identify and state attributes or characteristics of a service and that could be a computation service or a storage service or application service," he says. "If that is made available and provided and stored in a registry, users can easily identify those that suit their purpose."
