We are plausibly using cloud computing right now to send email, edit documents, watch movies or TV, listening to music, playing games, or storing pictures and other files. Cloud computing is used in a wide range of applications behind the scenes as depicted in the image and is embracing the technology for all sorts of reasons. Here are a few of the things you can do with the cloud:
And this is inspired us to bring this blog to you: To provide a perspective on the application and how cloud computing is trying to make a difference in the present scenario. This blog will provide insights on the following:
- Steps involved in the selection of topic?
- How to go about implementation in cloud computing?
- How to write the thesis?
Selecting topic and base paper in cloud computing:
The primary step to select a topic will be to search latest published IEEE transaction papers, probably lying between 2015 to 2017. That is where you should start looking for topics.
You will have to perform an exhaustive background research on cloud computing to identify the problems encountered by the appropriate field. To make it easier, listed below are some of the challenging areas in cloud computing that have not been fully developed and can be looked into for formulating a PhD topic:
- Automated service provisioning
- Virtual machine migration
- Server consolidation
- Energy management
- Traffic management and analysis
- Data security
- Storage technologies and data management
- Software frameworks
- Novel cloud architectures
Once you are done with proposing a new idea, you need to validate it and show its worth in actually resolving the specific research problem through implementation. Implementation of the proposed approach in a simulation environment should be performed in an authorized tool to determine its efficiency. Generally used tools for the simulations are CloudSim, Cloud Analyst, and MATLAB. Recently, CloudExp were introduced as an experimental framework in mobile cloud computing. Further research on the simulation and a novel technique will be generated during the PhD tenure.
Thesis writing is a significant milestone for PhD candidates. Essential elements to be focused on when writing a thesis is as shown in the image.
This chapter provides an overview of the entire thesis while highlighting the focal points of cloud computing and the required research to be conducted.
- Literature review
This stage will help in initial understanding of the issue to be researched in addition to the research gaps in existing research and reviews the contribution that can be made by the research.
- Research Methodology
This chapter provides is a clear, precise, and succinct methodology to solve the issues that is being investigated.
- Design and Implementation
In this stage, the proposed novel technique is implemented and is employed to solve the specific research problem identified in the problem statement.
- Discussion and Conclusion
In order to facilitate the research, this chapter discusses the interpretation of the results in detail and how they should be presented in the thesis. This section will involve the comparison and contrasts the research results with previous research studies.
