1. General: Briefly explain the differences and similarities between cloud computing, grid computing, and high-performance computing.

2. Optimization:

3. Security:

4. Parallelization:

5. Green computing: An environmentally conscious user wants to decrease the computing cost and to decrease the effect on the environment. For that purpose, he can distribute his computations between two cloud services:

If out of total amount c of computations, the user assigns c1 to the first service and c2 = c − c1 to the second service, then: For this multi-optimization problem:
