Dear Sir/ Madam,

Good day, my name is Chong Chun Yong, currently pursuing my master degree in 
Computer Science at the national university of Malaysia. 

For your information, our University have recently launched a research project 
title "On demand resource allocation using Cloud Computing". We are currently 
using VCL as the platform, enabling our university students to perform 
resource reservation through our private cloud infrastructure. 

So far our prototype has proven to be successful and we plan to migrate the 
whole system to a blade server. 

The part that I am in charge of is to design a software architecture of the 
entire system in order to migrate our server smoothly. In order to achieve 
that, I plan to perform an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) test to identify 
which of the software quality to prioritize in cloud computing environment. 
I would need around 20 participants who are experienced in VCL to conduct this 
test. The questionnaire would be in the form of pairwise comparison between 
several software qualities. The questionnaire is fairly simple as the 
participant would only need to provide score on the compared software quality.

Thus, I am hoping that you would be kind enough to find several volunteers to 
help me in this questionnaire. I would be really grateful if this test can be 
conducted smoothly. I will send the questionnaire form once I got a green 
light from you. I sincerely hope that my humble request can be accepted.

Hope to receive a favorable reply from you soon. 

Yours sincerely,
Chong Chun Yong

Chong Chun Yong,

It would be much better to ask this on the vcl dev list 
(vcl-dev@incubator.apache.org).  There are many more people on that list that 
run VCL installations.  Also, it would be useful to know what type of VCL 
users you need for your questionnaire.  Do you just need people that are end 
users of VCL (people that just use it to make reservations)?  Do you need 
people that are sysadmins of a VCL installation?  Do you need people that can 
do a full installation of VCL?  Do you need people that are developers of VCL?  
Specifying that would allow people to know if they would be qualified to 
answer the questions you will be asking.

Dear Josh,

Thanks for the fast reply and feedback. I am very sorry for the lack of 
information provided in my first email. Basically my purpose of the 
questionnaire is to identify which software quality attribute to be prioritize 
in designing the system architecture of VCL that is going to deploy in my 
university. (Which is a private cloud that only provide access to students and 
lecturers in my university) As we know there are no way for us to fulfill all 
the software quality requirement in a system architecture due to conflict and 
trade-off between each quality attribute. 
Thus I believe that I will need system admins of VCL installation, as well as 
developers of VCL to participate in the questionnaire. Based on the experience 
of troubleshooting and developing VCL from this two user groups, I would like 
to know which software quality attribute have the higher priority compare to 
others. Typical end users might not be able to express their view correctly 
because they are not aware of the back-end operation. 

Once again, thanks for guidance and feedback.

Thanks and regards,
Chong Chun Yong
