Reputation-Based Cooperation in the Clouds

Abstract : The popularity of the cloud computing paradigm is opening new opportunities for collaborative computing. In this paper we tackle a fundamental problem in open-ended cloud-based distributed computing platforms, i.e., the quest for potential collaborators. We assume that cloud participants are willing to share their computational resources for shared distributed computing problems, but they are not willing to disclose the details of their resources. Lacking such information, we advocate to rely on reputation scores obtained by evaluating the interactions among participants. More specifically, we propose a methodology to assess, at design time, the impact of different (reputation-based) collaborator selection strategies on the system performance. The evaluation is performed through statistical analysis on a volunteer cloud simulator.
