Autonomic Cloud Computing: A Review

Yazid Ado Ibrahim, Alhassan Adamu, Salisu Mamman Abdulrahman, Akilu Rilwan Muhammad


The wide acceptability of cloud computing and its adoption, though remarkable, also gave the technology its greatest challenge in 'user expectation'. These challenges include; Reliability and availability, integration and interoperability, scalability, virtual machine migration policies, failure prediction, and resource management. In this paper, a general review of cloud computing was done highlighting its challenges. Autonomic Cloud computing was also reviewed. Future research areas were identified.
