Abstract: In the not-too-distant future, billions of people, places and things will all be connected to each other and to useful services through the Internet. In such a world scalable, cost-effective information technology capabilities will need to be provisioned as service, delivered as a service, metered as a service, managed as a service, and purchased as a service. Consequently, processing and storage will be accessible as utilities where customers pay for what they need when they need it and where they need it. This paper describes this service centric view of next generation Internet computing, application requirements for adaptive infrastructure, and relationships with the Grid. Case study results illustrate performance and thermal issues for adaptive infrastructure. Finally, key open research questions pertaining to adaptive infrastructure and Internet computing are summarized.
