The idea behind cloud computing is to deliver
Infrastructure-, Platform- and Software-as-a-Service (IaaS, PaaS
and SaaS) over the network on an easy pay-per-use business
model. In this paper, we present our work, Virtual Cluster as a
Service (ViteraaS), that provides on-demand high performance
computing for research projects, and e-Learning and teaching
purposes in a private cloud. Moreover, ViteraaS can be extended
to use Amazon’s public cloud infrastructure as needed. ViteraaS
can be categorized as PaaS that leverages OpenNebula, a virtual
infrastructure manager, to dynamically create a cluster of virtual
machines (VMs) on idle resources or dedicated servers. In
addition, ViteraaS is integrated within the university’s existing
IT infrastructure like Single Sign-On for seamless authentication
and authorization. Finally, a Quality of Service monitoring
module is used by ViteraaS to monitor the performance and
status of these VMs.
