Towards A Meta-Model of the Cloud Computing Resource Landscape

Abstract

As Cloud Computing becomes more predominant, large scale datacenters are subject to an increasing demand for efficiency and flexibility. However, growing infrastructure management complexity and maintenance costs are becoming a hindrance to the advancement of the Cloud vision. In this paper we discuss how existing datacenter resource management approaches fail to provide infrastructure elasticity and suggest a resources provisioning architecture to fill this gap. As a first step towards implementing our targets, we present a metamodel to describe the characteristics of the Cloud landscape, emphasising on a provider’s perspective. With this meta-model we intend to introduce new modelling concepts towards facilitating the selection of optimal reconfigurations in a timely fashion.
