Title: "Survey on Programming and Tasking in Cloud Computing Environments"
Mr. Zhiqiang Ma
Cloud computing is an emerging and increasingly popular computing paradigm,
which provides the users massive computing resources which are available on
demand. But writing efficient distributed parallel applications is complex and
difficult. Tasking large scale execution in cloud computing environments is
also challenging because of the complexity of the environments such as network
bandwidth being scarce resource, faults being common, and the heterogeneity.
Different solutions to programming and tasking in cloud computing environments
have been proposed, each has its own strengths and weakness.
We categorize the current important approaches into three classes: application
framework level approach, language level approach and instruction level
approach. Cloud computing service providers also have their own programming
model and APIs to be used by users. In this report, we will survey the
different programming models and tasking approaches and briefly introduce our
works in this area.
