Abstract

We present fundamental challenges for scalable and dependable service platforms and architectures that enable flexible and dynamic provisioning of cloud services. Our findings are incorporated in a toolkit targeting the cloud service and infrastructure providers. The innovations behind the toolkit are aimed at optimizing the whole service life cycle, including service construction, deployment, and operation, on a basis of aspects such as trust, risk, eco-efficiency and cost. Notably, adaptive self-preservation is crucial to meet predicted and unforeseen changes in resource requirements. By addressing the whole service life cycle, taking into account several cloud architectures, and by taking a holistic approach to sustainable service provisioning, the toolkit aims to provide a foundation for a reliable, sustainable, and trustful cloud computing industry.

Item Type: Article
Additional information: <19> This paper presents the main concepts and innovations originating from the EC FW7 OPTIMIS project. The OPTIMIS toolkit (www.optimistoolkit.com) enables secure, risk-aware and compliant cloud application construction & life-cycle management. The OPTIMIS platform (http://www.optimis-project.eu) enables multi-cloud optimization based on trust, risk, eco-efficiency and cost. The author was responsible for scientifically leading all toolkit and cloud platform integration and business validation activities of OPTIMIS. This paper also addressed the challenges of a previous ECOWS 2010 paper, while its trust and multi-cloud innovations were further detailed in ICON 2012 and IFIPTM 2013 papers. ; number of additional authors: 22;
