A stretchy site mechanism is to solve the allocation of resources problem of computation capacity in the environment of cloud computing is proposed he re. In this paper, we investigate the benefits that organizations can reap by using “Cloud Computing" providers to augment the computi ng capacity of their local infrastructure. We have implemented a resource manager, built on the Nimbus toolkit to dynamica lly and securely extend existing physical clusters into the cloud. . Requests for resources are submitted to the organisation`s cluster, but additional Resources s are instantiated in the remote p rovider and added to the local cluster when there are insuffi cient resources to serve the users` requests.
