Abstract : The emerging cloud computing model has recently gained a lot of interest both from commercial companies and from the research community. XtreemOS is a distributed operating system for large-scale wide-area dynamic infrastructures spanning multiple administrative domains. XtreemOS, which is based on the Linux operating system, has been designed as a Grid operating system providing native support for virtual organizations. In this paper, we discuss the positioning of XtreemOS technologies with regard to cloud computing. More specifically, we investigate a scenario where XtreemOS could help users take full advantage of clouds in a global environment including their own resources and cloud resources. We also discuss how the XtreemOS system could be used by cloud service providers to manage their underlying infrastructure. This study shows that the XtreemOS distributed operating system is a highly relevant technology in the new era of cloud computing where future clouds seamlessly span multiple bare hardware providers and where customers extend their IT infrastructure by provisioning resources from different cloud service providers.
