Resource Allocation for Cloud-Based Notary Service
Cloud computing has emerged as an important platform for business and companies, providing a cost-effective way to scale business service with users demand. The proposed research project aims to take full advantage of cloud computing for legal-service companies in Canada, with a particular focus on cloud resource allocation. Unlike conventional resource-allocation schemes that are either centralized or distributed, the proposed research will develop a new hybrid resource-allocation scheme that enjoys clear advantages over conventional schemes. In particular, a theoretical foundation will be established and practical algorithms will be developed for hybrid resource allocation, based on which a software platform will be designed for cloud-based notary service. This software platform has a potential to revolutionize legal services in Canada.
