My research interests are focused primarily on energy and performance efficient resource management in virtualized data centers for cloud computing, and robust optimization modeling.
Recently, Cloud infrastructures are quickly becoming the ideal platform for the rapid development and deployment of elastic, scalable, web applications and services. Service provisioning in Clouds is based on Service Level Agreements (SLAs). On one side, SLA violation should be prevented to avoid costly penalties and on the other side, infrastructure providers have to efficiently utilize resources to minimize cost for the service provisioning. Thus, deploying strategies considering application demands and efficient resources allocations are still open research challenges.
My research work can be described as the opportunity in concert with application aware deployment to simultaneously deliver effective service delivery and enhanced resource utilization in virtualized infrastructures.
