Session 1: Multi-Cloud Background and General Issues

Multi-Cloud: Expectations and Current Approaches

Authors:

Dana Petcu (Institute e-Austria Timişoara & West University of Timişoara)

Abstract:

Using resources and services from multiple Clouds is a natural evolution from consuming the ones from in-silo Clouds. Technological and administrative barriers are however slowing the process. Fortunately the recent years are marked by the appearance of several solutions that are partially overpassing them. However, the approaches are quite various and not adopted at large scale. This paper intends to offer a snapshot of the current state-of-the-art and to identify the future steps in building Multi-Clouds. A list of basic requirements for a Multi-Cloud is proposed.

Abstract:

In this paper, we provide an overview over the PaaSage project’s approach to helping the developer in exploiting cloud environments according to their specific needs and requirements. Classical software engineering methodologies no longer apply in multi-tenant, elastic environments, if the full capabilities for cost reduction and availability are to be exploited. PaaSage aims at offering software engineering extensions covering the full application lifecycle from deployment to execution.
