    Background and ScopeCloud computing is emerging as a cost-effective paradigm

    for accessing and provisioning computational resources over theinternet. Although todays solutions vary widely in their service,programming, and business models, they are invariably supportedby large collections of physical resources spread over multipledistributed data centers. The expected unprecedented scale ofthese environments raises numerous new research questionsand opens up new avenues for exploration by the parallel anddistributed computing research community. This special issueseeks to catalyze this activity by focusing on all aspects pertainingto both classical and emerging topics in parallel and distributedcomputing with relevance for building scalable infrastructure forcloud computing.

    TopicsSpecific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    Cloud Architectures: compute, network, and storage architec-tures; consistency, reliability, and fault-tolerance models; pri-vacy and security mechanisms;

    Operational Aspects: design and construction of data centers;power and resourcemanagement; virtualization and consolida-0743-7315/$ see front matterdoi:10.1016/j.jpdc.2009.07.002put. 69 (2009) 813
