As cloud computing becomes more widely adopted, the size of cloud systems will necessarily become larger. In recent years, large companies, such as Google and Amazon, have become reliant on resources and services provided by cloud computing environments. While these large corporations have most likely implemented efficient, dynamic, and scalable systems for managing their cloud infrastructure, they are highly protected corporate secrets, and very few (If any) publicly-available cloud management systems exist that are easily configurable and offer a high degree of scalability. This paper proposes an innovative architecture for an extremely scalable cloud management system that provides dynamic management of cloud services with minimal configuration.
