The next wave in computing technology, expected to usher in a new era, will be based on cloud computing. Cloud computing assembles large networks of virtualized services comprising hardware resources (CPU, storage, and network) and software resources (e.g., databases, message queuing systems, monitoring system, and load-balancers). Cloud providers offer organizations the option of deploying their application over a network of infinite resource pool with practically no capital investment, and with modest operating costs proportional to their actual usage. As with any emerging technology, a host of issues related to the deployment and delivery models, security issues, performance considerations, etc., are in a state of flux. This compendium contains state-of-the-art papers on cloud computing presented at the first international conference organized by the Computer Society of India in July 2012, which would be of interest to researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners active in this field.

Anirban Basu (MTech in electronics, masters and PhD degrees in computer science), is currently Chief Consultant to PQR Software, Bangalore, and Professor and Head, Computer Science Engineering (R&D) at East Point Research Academy, Bangalore. He has more than 30 years of experience in academics, software development, industry consultancy and corporate training. Dr Basu is a recipient of a number of awards including the 1985 Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship in Computer Science and the Computer Engineering Division Gold Medals of the Institution of Engineers (India). He was Chairperson,Computer Society of India (CSI), Bangalore Chapter, in 2010-2011, and is Event Chair, International Conference on Advances in Cloud Computing (ACC 2012), organized by the society.

Rajiv Ranjan (BTech and PhD in computer science) is a research scientist and project leader at CSIRO ICT Center Information Engineering Laboratory, Canberra, where he works on projects related to cloud and service computing. Prior to this he was a senior research associate at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW). He was Program Chair for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Australasian symposiums on parallel and distributed computing and the 2010 IEEE TCSC Doctoral Symposium. He is an editor of IEEE TCSC Newsletter.

Rajkumar Buyya is a professor of computer science and software engineering and the director of Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS) Laboratory at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He is also the founding CEO of Manjrasoft, a spin-off company of the university involved in the commercialization of innovations in cloud computing.  He is the founding Chair of IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing and has contributed significantly to the organisation of five IEEE/ACM conferences. These contributions and Dr Buyya’s leading research work has been recognised with honours like the 2009 IEEE Medal for Excellence in Scalable Computing (IEEE Computer Society, USA), and the 2010 Asia Pacific Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award as well as the 2011 Telstra Innovation Challenge, People’s Choice Award for Manjrasoft''s Aneka cloud technology.
