Google uses Chubby (a locking service) and Chubby uses State Machine Replication based on Paxos. Thus Consensus, an essential component of State Machine Replication, can be justifiable Cloud research area. Research on Consensus, new Consensus protocols and tools, alternatives to Consensus are sub-research agenda.

One could also work on proposing better power management skills for Cloud i.e. exploring ways to do less during rush hours and migrating work in time to lightly loaded machines. What about the stability of a system having large-scale platforms, management technologies, hundreds or thousands of nodes, tens of data center?

Even thinking of entirely new operating systems or virtualization architectures – with support for massively scalable protocols, may not be unrealistic in near future. I-Cluster enables automatic real-time analysis of the availability and workload of machines on an intranet, to take advantage of unused network resources. Defining architecture to assist the administration of compute resources from dissimilar Cloud providers in a homogenous manner is also an interesting research issue. Abstraction and implementation issues in virtualization, datacenter virtualization without compromising server performance are also some of the challenges.

Representative APR 391%. Average APR for this type of loans is 391%. Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
