Re: Elastic computing

Another issue with this form of computing is with the non-functionals and SLAs. Having spent the last few months working on a grid computation system, I often see fantastic throughput but terrible latency. e.g. getting 99% of the job done in minutes but waiting an hour for the last 1%. As it's in a 'cloud' you often lack control over *how* your work is actually executed.

These issues are solvable but hard..
