Cloud-TM: harnessing the cloud with distributed transactional memories
One of the main challenges to harness the potential of Cloud computing is the design of programming models that simplify the development of large-scale parallel applications and that allow ordinary programmers to take full advantage of the computing power and the storage provided by the Cloud, both of which made available, on demand, in a pay-only-forwhat-you-use pricing model. In this paper, we discuss the use of the Transactional Memory programming model in the context of the cloud computing paradigm, which we refer to as Cloud-TM. We identify where existing Distributed Transactional Memory platforms still fail to meet the requirements of the cloud and of its users, and we point several open research problems whose solution we deem as essential to materialize the Cloud-TM vision.
