IT resources with a random and unforeseeable utilization over time experience unpredictable workload.
|How can random and unforeseeable utilization be characterized and how can applications experiencing this workload benefit from cloud computing?|
Random workloads are a generalization of Periodic Workloads as they require elasticity but are not predictable. Such workloads occur quite often in the real world.
Unplanned provisioning and decommissioning of IT resources is required. The necessary provisioning and decommissioning of IT resources is, therefore, automated to align the resource numbers to changing workload.
