computing resources will evolve. Instead of providers exclusively 
selling server-equivalent virtual machines for relatively long periods 
of time (as done in today's IaaS clouds), they will increasingly sell 
individual resources (such as CPU, memory, and I/O resources) for a few 
seconds at a time. We term this nascent economic model of cloud 
computing the Resource-as-a-Service (RaaS) cloud, and we argue that its 
rise is the likely culmination of recent trends in the construction of 
IaaS clouds and of the economic forces operating on both providers and 

The paper appeared in HotCloud 2012. Joint work with Muli Ben-Yehuda, 
Assaf Schuster and Dan Tsafrir. The theoretical talk will be followed by

Eyal Posener.
