Virtual Cloud: Rent Out the Rented Resources


With the advent in cloud computing technologies, use of cloud computing infrastructure is increasing day by day and a lot of enterprises are shifting their computing from in-house infrastructure to the cloud infrastructure. Over a small period of time, it has substantiated to be an attractive choice for the enterprises. Especially for those, who wants to have minimal upfront cost for their technology infrastructure. This aspect of cloud computing makes it particularly suitable for a new enterprise. Currently, cloud services are a bit expensive, but a good number of enterprises and individuals can be attracted to the cloud computing by providing the low cost cloud services. In a fast growing cloud vendor market, provision of low cost cloud services is a difficult task for the cloud vendors. In this paper, we present a model of Virtual Cloud. The concept of Virtual cloud revolves around the concept, "Rent Out the Rented Resources''. It aims to reduce the monetary cost of cloud services. In this model, we propose to virtualize an already virtualized infrastructure. To achieve this, cloud vendor offers the low cost cloud services by acquiring underutilized resources from some big third party enterprise.
