Ph.Lic. Thesis Outline

My Ph. Lic, has been defended successfully on the 10th of June, 2013. The title of the thesis is " Capacity Scaling for Elastic Compute Clouds". Full thesis available here.  You can watch the defense here. Slides used during the presentation are also available .
The grading committee members were:
- Assoc. Prof. Alexandru Iosup (Discussion leader)
- Prof. Frank Drewes
- Assoc.  Prof. Leonid Freidovich
 .  The thesis consists of an introduction and the following papers:
