Clouds' Infrastructure Taxonomy, Properties, and Management Services
Moving current Clouds' infrastructure to trustworthy Internet scale critical infrastructure requires supporting the infrastructure with automated management services. Thereby, the infrastructure provides, as described by NIST, "Minimal management effort or service provider interaction". The initial step in this direction requires understanding how experts in the domain manage Clouds' infrastructure, and how the infrastructural components are interlinked with each other. These are the main contribution in this paper; i.e., proposes a Cloud taxonomy focusing on infrastructure components interaction and management, provides a real life scenario of a critical application architecture using the proposed taxonomy, and then derive the management services using the provided scenario.
