A significant numberof Cloud applications follow the 3-tier architectural pattern. Manyofthem serve customers worldwide and must meet non-functional requirements such as reliability, responsiveness and Quality of Experience (QoE). Thus the flexibility and scalability offered by clouds make them a suitable deployment environment. Latest developments show that using multiple clouds can further increase an application's reliability and user experience to a level that has not been achievable before. However, the research in scheduling and provisioning 3-tier applications in clouds and across clouds is still in its infancy. To foster the research efforts in the area, we propose an analytical perf..
