• What two key challenges in grid and cloud computing could autonomics address?
• What one key challenge would you like to focus on in the next two to three years?
• What one action would you take (or encourage) to facilitate better interaction between the grid and cloud computing communities and the autonomics community?
• management of unpredictable system behavior and unforeseen user behavior and abuse;
• better management of quality of service (QoS), primarily to gain greater confidence from the user community, thereby adding value to existing deployment;
• better management of energy consumption; and
• more effective resource management to support scalability so that resources behave "elastically" at higher usage levels.
