  • Middleware, framework and novel computing models for grid and cloud
           service orchestration
    • Authors: Fabrizio Messina, Rao Mikkilineni, Giovanni Morana
      Pages: 71 - 73
      Abstract: Highly scalable, resilient commodity hardware along with the availability of huge amounts of data allow consumers and companies to access to a wide range of high-value services through a pay-per-use, pay-as-you-go model. The increasing need for intelligent services at large scale is bringing providers to optimise the use of resources in order to meet the increasing web-scale demand. Programming models are evolving to address the high complexity of service composition, which need resiliency and efficiency. Algorithms and technologies for intelligent orchestration allow multiple owners of cloud and grid infrastructures to satisfy customer requirements and business constraints. We assist in the development of new architectures, frameworks, middlewares and computing models, as well as innovative applications, aimed at supporting scientists and business analysts in the development of unified computing frameworks and data analysis at large scale. This paper summarises a number of contributions given in the area of distributed cloud and grid computing, with particular emphasis on service orchestrations and emergent applications for high-value services.

  • Cognitive application area networks
    • Authors: Rao Mikkilineni, Giovanni Morana, Daniele Zito, Surendra Keshan
      Pages: 74 - 81
      Abstract: Each software application, from e-commerce to a complex machine learning algorithm, is composed of a set of distributed, interacting components that collaborate to accomplish a common goal. While this application goal or the intent is well-defined and decomposed into sub-tasks to be embedded (à la Turing machine) in each composed component, the quality of the application (in terms of performance, responsiveness, availability or robustness) is strongly influenced by how and where the components are executed. This kind of information, including the meta-knowledge of the intent of the algorithm, the association of specific component to a specific machine, the temporal evolution and exception handling when the application deviates from its intent, is outside the application design and expressed in terms of non-functional requirements. In this paper, we describe how it is possible to exploit these non-functional requirements to effectively enforce the application intent while the computation is still in progress.

  • MAROQ: a resource allocation model driven through quality of
           experience
    • Authors: André D'Amato, Mario Dantas, Douglas D.J. De Macedo
      Pages: 82 - 93
      Abstract: The trend of grid computing available on the internet has generated challenges to the allocation of resources provided by this type of environment. Many of these challenges can be solved by the quality of experience paradigm that takes into account several context parameters. In this context, this paper presents the proposal of a new quality of experience-driven model for resource allocation for grids named MAROQ. We detail an experimental evaluation using context information with MAROQ that presents improvements of 7.46% on the average execution time of tasks.

  • A study of comparative clustering of EU countries using the DBSCAN and
           k-means techniques within the theoretical framework of systemic
           geopolitical analysis
    • Authors: Ilias K. Savvas, Alekos Stogiannos, Ioannis Th. Mazis
      Pages: 94 - 108
      Abstract: As a geographical method of analysing power redistribution, Systemic Geopolitical Analysis (according to Ioannis Th. Mazis theoretical basis) proposes a multi-dimensional, interdisciplinary research pattern, which embraces economic, cultural, political and defensive facts. The amount of data produced combining these attributes is extremely large and complex. One of the solutions to explore and analyse this data is clustering it. In this work, two clustering algorithms were used, namely DBSCAN and the k-means techniques both of which cluster data according to its characteristics. While DBSCAN groups data based on the minimum size of participating objects per cluster and the minimum required distance between them, k-means clusters the data objects according the pre-desired number of groups. Thus, since the two methods use different roads to group the data objects, they form different clusters but each one has its importance depending on the characteristics of the applied method. As a result, in this work a comparative study is presented.

  • A smart storage optimisation technique on the cloud
    • Authors: Klaithem Al Nuaimi, Nader Mohamed, Mariam Al Nuaimi, Jameela Al-Jaroodi
      Pages: 109 - 119
      Abstract: This paper is an extension to a recent work on enhancing load balancing and optimising storage consumption on the cloud. Our methodology, called ssCloud (Smart Storage Cloud), is based on methods designed to enhance the load balancing in concurrent file download techniques on the cloud using a collaborative dual direction technique. In this paper, we show how ssCloud operates in both the upload and download phases for providing Data as a Service (DaaS) on the cloud. Our goal is to reduce the amount of storage consumed on the cloud while providing a fast and efficient download time for the cloud clients. This is done by having two separate cloud interfaces, one for download requests (load balancing module) and another for upload requests, which involves partitioning and saving files on the available cloud servers (FileController). We also provide an analysis of ssCloud performance and compare it to other reviewed storage optimisation techniques on the cloud by simulating the cloud environment and comparing service times.

  • SLAs for cloud applications: agreement protocol and REST-based
           implementation
    • Authors: Alessandra De Benedictis, Massimiliano Rak, Umberto Villano
      Pages: 120 - 132
      Abstract: Users with critical data are still reluctant to move apps and data to commercial clouds, showing a substantial lack of trust in providers. Possible risks linked to availability, performance and security may be mitigated by the adoption of Service Level Agreements (SLAs) established among cloud service providers and their customers. This paper presents the design of services for the automatic management of cloud-oriented SLAs by means of a REST-based API. The API is exposed by an SLA Manager component that can be easily integrated into existing cloud applications, platforms and infrastructures, in order to support SLA-based cloud services delivery. Its functionalities have been designed according to an extended version of the agreement protocol state diagram proposed by the WS-Agreement standard, which takes explicitly into account negotiation, remediation and renegotiation issues and is compliant with all the active standards on security.

  • Flexible simulations of complex networks in OpenStack clouds
    • Authors: Francesco Costanzo, Fabrizio Messina, Giuseppe Pappalardo, Corrado Santoro
      Pages: 133 - 141
      Abstract: This paper describes a flexible software architecture aimed at performing simulations of complex networks on cloud computing environment based on OpenStack. The kernel of the architecture consists of ComplexSim, a C-based software simulator of complex networks composed of two different layers: the Parallel Simulation Kernel is devoted to manage event-driven simulations on SMP systems through a set of API calls useful to schedule tasks and events; on the other hand, API of the Complex Network Data & Runtime is used to define the complex network in terms of the graph of entities and related user-defined attributes, as well as the runtime behaviour. Two additional components provide the necessary automation to configure, deploy and execute a set of simulations in OpenStack clouds: the Cs-Generator allows to generate any set of user-defined directives, as well as directives for the engine; Cs-CloudRuntime is the component devoted to run the user-defined set of simulations in an OpenStack cloud, i.e. VMs preparation, deployment and execution, as well as collection of results.

  • Combining reputation and QoS measures to improve cloud service composition
    • Authors: Fabrizio Messina, Giuseppe Pappalardo, Antonello Comi, Lidia Fotia, Domenico Rosaci, Giuseppe M.L. Sarné
      Pages: 142 - 151
      Abstract: In order to provide a wide range of composite Cloud services, providers need to establish mutual agreements on large-scale distributed multi-cloud scenario. In such a way, providers can compose effective and efficient service workflows by taking resources of their own competitors and gain the capability to satisfy unexpected workload peaks. In this paper, we propose a reputation-based model capable to support the composition of complex Cloud services by taking into account both costs and measures of QoS which are collected by measuring both system measures and reputation feedbacks provided by the customers. The proposed model has been validated by a set of experimental results obtained by means of a number of simulations.

  • A new inter-cloud service-level guarantee protocol applied to
           space missions
    • Authors: Ali Kaddouri, Mustapha Guezouri, Nader Mbarek
      Pages: 152 - 167
      Abstract: Nowadays, the term cloud computing often falsely assumes the availability of an unlimited pool of resources. On the contrary, if a cloud provider reaches its limits, it may pose the risk of breaking their service level agreement (SLA). Space agencies could start using the cloud computing model within their IT infrastructure with multiple ground control points around the world to reduce the cost. An inter-cloud communication protocol with a guarantee of the service level will significantly reduce the cost if each ground control segment is considered as a cloud provider. This paper outlines a new protocol that was developed to take into consideration the end-to-end service-level guarantee. The protocol defines new structures and functionalities instead of the commonly used BGP as a baseline. The paper presents the results of a performance evaluation study concerning the convergence time and the data overhead as well as the ability of the protocol to support any domain-specific services. The results are highly positive, showing the scalability of the solution. The application of our proposal within the space industry also proved to be a suitable means for experimentation of the protocol.
