Deploying Business Virtual Appliances on Open Source Cloud Computing
The Cloud computing emerges as a new computing paradigm which aims to provide reliable, customized and QoS guaranteed dynamic computing environments for end-users. Virtual Machines (VMs) provide a virtualization solution to the security and resource management issues that arise in isolated environment. The authors encounter the need to deploy an open source cloud computing and integrate VM (a virtual business server) with business applications into cloud models and the existing resource management infrastructure. To address such requirements, the paper describes an approach to deploying business virtual appliances on Open-source Scientific Cloud computing based on the Globus Virtual Workspace Service (Nimbus project) as an Infrastructure as a Service.
