Cloud computing has become a main medium for Software as a Service (SaaS) hosting as it can provide the scalability a SaaS requires. One of the challenges in hosting the SaaS is the placement process where the placement has to consider SaaS interactions between its components and SaaS interactions with its data components. A previous research has tackled this problem using a classical genetic algorithm (GA) approach. This paper proposes a cooperative coevolutionary algorithm (CCEA) approach. The CCEA has been implemented and evaluated and the result has shown that the CCEA has produced higher quality solutions compared to the GA.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
