Benchmark (ycsb) Amazonís storage services (SimpleDB, RDS, Dynamo). Note, I am currently looking at Dynamo.

Identify and/or develop monitoring tools for Amazon cloud that provide comprehensive and detailed information.

Develop prediction models for workload execution time, or network traffic. For forecasting network traffic consider the work of Wolski et al. on Network Weather Service.

Develop cost models for Amazon Storage Services (e.g. Dynamo, RDS, SimpleDB). The models could be parameterized by the workload type, amount of workload, SLA,

Develop new benchmarks for e.g. availability, replication.
