Unifying Cloud Management: Towards Overall Governance of Business Level Objectives

The authors address the challenge of providing unified cloud resource management towards an overall business level objective, given the multitude of managerial tasks to be performed and the complexity of any architecture to support them. Resource level management tasks include elasticity control, virtual machine and data placement, autonomous fault management, etc, which are intrinsically difficult problems since services normally have unknown lifetime and capacity demands that varies largely over time. To unify the management of these problems,(for optimization with respect to some higher level business level objective, like optimizing revenue while breaking no more than a certain percentage of service level agreements) becomes even more challenging as the resource level managerial challenges are far from independent.
