System and method for information acquisition of wireless sensor network data as cloud based service
Abstract
A system and a method for information acquisition of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) data as a cloud based service are provided. An apparatus in the system including a WSN, a service cloud, and a device, includes a virtual sensor configured to receive data from a physical sensor in the WSN. The apparatus further includes a virtual sensor controller configured to receive a request for the data from the service cloud or the device, and spawn a virtual machine (VM) based on the request. The apparatus further includes the VM configured to transmit the data to the service cloud or the device.

The grid is realizing the vision of providing computation as utility: computational jobs can be scheduled on-demand at grid hosts based on available computational capacity. In this project, we study another emerging usage of grid utility: the hosting of application services. Different from a computational job, an application service such as an e-Laboratory or an on-line business has longer lifetime, and performs multiple jobs requested by its clients. A service hosting utility platform (HUP) is ...
