The cloud computing paradigm allows on-demand access to computing and storage services over the Internet. Multiple providers are offering a variety of software solutions in the form of virtual appliances and computing units in the form of virtual machines with different pricing and QoS in the market. Thus, it is important to exploit the benefit of hosting virtual appliances on multiple providers to not only reduce the cost and provide better QoS but also achieve failure-resistant deployment. This paper presents a framework called CloudPick to simplify cross-cloud deployment and particularly focuses on QoS modeling and deployment optimization. For QoS modeling, cloud services have been automa..
