"Implementing, Serving, and Using Cloud Storage" SNIA-OCT2010

Cloud computing is not a new technology, but rather, a new business model that
encompasses a set of technologiessuch as server virtualizationthat reduce the cost of
using information technology (IT) resources. Cloud computing takes advantage of Web-based
mechanisms that allow scalable, virtualized IT resources to be provided as a service over a
network. When virtualized storage is available on demand over a network, organizations are
not required to buy or provision storage capacity before storing data. As a result,
organizations can save a significant amount of money on storage costs because they typically
only pay for the storage that they actually use.

Volume 2, Issue 2, February 2012 International Journal of Advanced Research in Computer
Science and Software Engineering.
In this e-learning cloud model, data storage is highly distributed, data management is highly
centralized and data service is highly virtualized, all of which offer a much safer data service.
E-leaning cloud environment provides large data center with mass data storage, high-speed
This architecture for the cloud platform provides a variety of user interface forms, such as
WebService interfaces, Java interfaces, C interfaces, Shell interface etc . Cloud computing
platform provide resources services to teachers and students in the form of rental. A module
is designed to which is based on the consumption billing to ensure that users only pay for
the resources they have used.

In this paper, they introduced cloud computing to e-learning, built an e-learning
cloud, and made an active research and exploration for it from the following aspects:
its work mode, architecture, construction method, external interface with the
business model, challenges and solutions etc.
Their results suggest that the introduction of cloud computing into e-learning is
feasible and it can greatly improve the efficiency of investment and the power of
management, which can make e-learning system development into a virtuous circle
and achieve a win-win situation for suppliers and customers.

Bo Dong," An E-learning Ecosystem Based on Cloud Computing Infrastructure"
Advanced Learning Technologies, 2009. ICALT 2009. Ninth IEEE International Conference
An e-learning ecosystem is the next generation e-learning. However, the current
models of e-learning ecosystems lack the support of underlying infrastructures,
which can dynamically allocate the required computation and storage resources for
e-learning ecosystems. Cloud computing is a promising infrastructure which
provides computation and storage resources as services. Hence, this paper
introduces Cloud computing into an e-learning ecosystem as its infrastructure.
Cloud computing infrastructure and related mechanisms allow for the stability,
equilibrium, efficient resource use, and sustainability of an e-learning ecosystem.

Wenying Zeng, " Research on cloud storage architecture and key technologies"
ICIS '09 Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Interaction Sciences:
Information Technology, Culture and Human

proposes a general architecture of cloud storage system, analyzes the functions of the
components, and discusses the key technologies. Cloud storage is a novel storage
service mode which the service providers supply storage capacities and data storage
services through the Internet to the clients; meanwhile, the clients needn't know the
details and lowered structures and mechanisms. The proposed architecture of cloud
storage is layered and cooperative, and the discussed key technologies involve
deployment, storage virtualization, data organization, migration, security.
