CReW: Cloud Resilience for Windows Guests Through Monitored Virtualization
Clouds are complex systems subject to an increasing number of anomalies and threats. In this paper, the authors briefly revisit the issues related to Windows guest cloud service resilience and later provide some preliminary results on the resilience of Windows cloud guests via virtualization. In particular, they propose architecture, Cloud Resilience for Windows (CReW). CReW can transparently monitor guest Windows VMs and can also react to both security breaches and system integrity violation, improving the dependability of cloudified Windows systems. CReW can also improve resilience from software misconfiguration by restoring the guest latest safe state.
