The CICA GRID - A Cloud Computing Infrastructure on Demand with Open Source Technologies

Abstract

A new approach technology to enable the expansion and replication of resources on demand is presented in this paper. This approach is called CICA GRID and it provides service to research community in the Scientific Computer Centre of Andalusia (CICA). This approach is an alternative solution to the initial cost involved in building an own data center by public organizations for researches. This solution quickly provides resources with a minimal technical staff effort. Also, an architecture and user interface example called ReCarta was presented. This system supplies a private Cloud Computing system for non-technical end-users.
