  • Cloud-based environment in support of IoT education
    • Authors: Anand Singh, Yannis Viniotis
      Pages: 187 - 203
      Abstract: Students taking an IoT curriculum need to acquire skills (among others) in areas as: a) developers of IoT applications; b) architects of IoT systems; c) administrators of such systems. At North Carolina State University, we have developed a cloud-based environment to support the development of such skills. The environment is based on IBM's Watson IoT Cloud Platform and uses components such as Intel's Edison Boards, Raspberry Pis, Cisco IoT gateways, TI boards, sensors/actuators, and GitHub, to give students an end-to-end experience in all aspects of IoT solution and system development. In this paper, we discuss the challenges we faced, how we overcame them, feedback from students and plans for our next steps.

  • Extreme value analysis for capacity design
    • Authors: Szilárd Bozóki, András Pataricza
      Pages: 204 - 225
      Abstract: Cloud computing has become the fundamental platform for service offerings. Such services frequently face peaks in their variable workload. Thus, the cloudification of critical applications with strict service level agreements (e.g., performability) needs a properly engineered capacity to withstand peak loads. A core problem is the prediction of the value of peaks, especially in bursty workloads. They originate in the cumulative effect of hard-to-predict rare and extreme events. Luckily, system monitoring collects enough vital information for a prediction by statistical methods. Extreme value analysis focuses on the prediction of future peaks. This paper investigates the use of extreme value theory for capacity planning in cloud platforms and services and assesses the technical metrology aspects as well.

  • A formal model towards scientific workflow security in a cloud
    • Authors: Donghoon Kim, Mladen A. Vouk
      Pages: 226 - 236
      Abstract: Scientific workflow management systems (SWFMS) may be vulnerable in a cloud since they may have not embraced practical security solutions yet. This paper presents an approach to formal modelling of scientific workflow security in the cloud. We focus on the procedure to build secure data flows in a holistic way. This work also suggests that a whitelist approach to input validation can play a role in protecting the flows from zero-day attacks.

  • A tale of two cloud analytics platforms for education
    • Authors: Donghoon Kim, Mladen A. Vouk
      Pages: 237 - 247
      Abstract: In this paper, we compare, using the Gartner's business analytics framework, the two most popular cloud analytics platforms currently being used in higher education: IBM's Watson Analytics (WA) and SAP's Lumira Cloud (LC). The Gartner framework enables one to examine an analytics platform from three broad perspectives: people, processes, and platform. Platform capabilities enable us to identify several functional modules which can be used to evaluate the tools' perceived usefulness (PU) and perceived ease of use (PEU). Our empirical studies find that WA and LC are similar in terms of their PU and PEU.

  • A framework for achieving the required degree of multitenancy isolation
           for deploying components of a cloud-hosted service
    • Authors: Laud Charles Ochei, Andrei Petrovski, Julian M. Bass
      Pages: 248 - 281
      Abstract: Multitenancy allows multiple tenants to access a single instance of a cloud offering. While several approaches exist for implementing multitenancy, little attention has been paid to implementing the required degree of isolation since there are varying degrees of isolation that can be implemented for each tenant. This paper presents a framework for achieving the required degree of isolation between tenants accessing a cloud offering so that the required performance, resource utilisation and access privilege of one tenant does not affect other tenants when there are workload changes. The framework is composed of two main constituents: 1) component-based approach to multitenancy isolation through request re-routing (COMITRE); 2) an optimisation model for providing optimal solutions for deploying components of a cloud-hosted service. We demonstrate using a case study of: 1) a cloud-hosted bug tracking system; 2) a synthetic dataset, the possibility of providing the required degree of isolation and optimal deployment solutions.

  • Why is garbage collection causing my service level objectives to fail?
    • Authors: Panagiotis Patros, Kenneth B. Kent, Michael Dawson
      Pages: 282 - 322
      Abstract: Cloud computing abstracts resources and provides them <i>as-a-service</i> to its tenant clients. Platform as a service clouds, which are one of the main types of cloud computing, provide large parts of the hardware/software stack to their users. Cloud systems are expected to abide by certain service level objectives and maintain a certain quality of service, which can be impacted by garbage collection (GC). However, cloud benchmarking is mostly focused in the interconnectivity of cloud services and often neglects the inner workings of language runtimes. In this paper, we present and evaluate <i>CloudGC</i>, a benchmark aiming to stress the GC component of a runtime in various and controllable ways. We then deploy our <i>CloudGC</i> on a cloud system to evaluate the SLO satisfaction of the four GC policies of the IBM J9 Java runtime. Our findings indicate that the default policy <i>Gencon</i> generally outperforms the other three policies, including <i>Balanced</i>, the policy which aims in amortising the costs.

      Abstract: Multi-cloud system may be cost-efficient and practical to integrate resources of multiple clouds. However, different clouds are usually managed by different organisations with different security policies and management platforms. When some components of a multi-cloud system are compromised, attackers can potentially have a high privilege that impacts the rest of system. We analysed the threats to overall system when some components of the multi-cloud system in a public cloud are compromised. We developed a model we call SECross for fine-grain database access policy for SECross components, and the method for users to access computing machines. We analysed how SECross resists various potential attacks when any of SECross components are compromised.

      Abstract: Timeliness and throughput critical applications require a framework offering predictable temporal characteristics. The best practice for estimating a prediction of the system dynamics relies on benchmarking. Each novel middleware solution needs such an evaluation as part of the development process to assure an appropriate throughput in the future use. General purpose blockchain frameworks are viable replacements for many current systems in several sectors by providing a fully distributed, secure, and non-repudiable ledger as a service. Blockchain technologies target domains with a large number of interactions, thus demanding strict performance guarantees. Engineering for performance targets in a trustworthy manner requires performance models. However, performance characteristics of blockchain systems are highly unexplored due to the novelty of the technology. This paper proposes a general-purpose, systematic methodology for the performance analysis of complex systems, aided by a component-in-the-loop approach. The Linux foundation-hosted hyperledger fabric serves as a case study for the presented methodology.
