  "abstract": "<p>CUDA has been used in many different application</p>\n\n<p>domains, not all of which are specifically image processingrelated.</p>\n\n<p>There is the opportunity to use multiple and/or distributed</p>\n\n<p>CUDA resources in cloud facilities such as Amazon</p>\n\n<p>Web Services (AWS), in order to obtain enhanced processing</p>\n\n<p>power and to satisfy time-critical requirements which cannot be</p>\n\n<p>satisfied using a single CUDA resource. In particular, this would</p>\n\n<p>provide enhanced ability for processing Big Data, especially in</p>\n\n<p>conjunction with distributed file systems (for example). In this</p>\n\n<p>paper, we present a survey of time-critical CUDA applications,</p>\n\n<p>identifying requirements and concepts that they tend to have</p>\n\n<p>in common. In particular, we investigate the terminology used</p>\n\n<p>for Quality of Service metrics, and present a taxonomy which</p>\n\n<p>summarises the underlying concepts and maps these terms to the</p>\n\n<p>diverse terminology used. We also survey typical requirements</p>\n\n<p>for developing, deploying and managing such applications. Given</p>\n\n<p>these requirements, we consider how the SWITCH platform can</p>\n\n<p>in principle support the entire life-cycle of time-critical CUDA</p>\n\n<p>application development and cloud deployment, and identify</p>\n\n<p>specific extensions which would be needed in order fully to</p>\n\n<p>support this particular class of time-critical cloud applications.</p>",
