Abstract: With the recent advances in efficient virtualization techniques in using commodity servers cloud computing has emerged as a powerful technology to meet new requirements for supporting a new generation of computing services based on utility model. However barriers to widespread adoption still exists and the dominant platform is yet to be seen in years to come. Hence the challenge of providing scalable cloud infrastructures requires a continuous exploration of new technologies and techniques. This thesis describes an experimental investigation of integrating two such open source technologies, OpenStack and GlusterFS, to build our cloud environment. We designed a number of test case scenarios that help us answer the questions around performance, stability and scalability of the cloud infrastructure deployed. Additionally, the work based on this thesis was accepted to the Conference on Computing in High Energy and Nuclear Physics (CHEP2013), and the paper is due for publishing.
