Abstract

Increasing computing clouds are delivered to customers. Each cloud, however, provides an individual, non-standard user interface. The difference in cloud interfaces must burden the users when they work with several clouds for acquiring the services with expected price. This paper introduces an integrated framework that can be used by cloud users to access the underlying services in a uniform, cloud-independent manner. The framework is an extention of a graphical grid user interface developed within the g-Eclipse project. The goal of building a cloud user interface on top of a grid interface is to combine clouds and grids into a single realm, allowing an easy interoperation between the two infrastructures.
