An Autonomic Open Marketplace for Inter-Cloud Service Management
The rise of utility in cloud computing and telecommunications has introduced greater complexity in the provisioning and performance management of remote services. The authors propose extended management strategies for this complexity. Their overall aim is for the management to accept responsibility for the complex service in an open marketplace. Responsibility is, firstly, defined by aiming to cover the totality of modern complex services, managing both the connectivity and virtual infrastructure. Secondly, responsibility is further defined as managing risk and resilience in the provisioning and operation of the complex service. With these aims, they are working towards a bundled service provider agent architecture, which can negotiate on the open service market.
