Self-Managed Services Conceptual Model in Trustworthy Clouds' Infrastructure
Source: Oxford University
Current clouds infrastructure do not provide the full potential of automated self-managed services. Cloud infrastructure management are supported by clouds' internal employees and contractors (e.g. enterprise architects, system and security administrators). Such manual management process that require human intervention is not adequate considering the cloud promising future as an Internet scale critical infrastructure. This paper is concerned about exploring and analyzing automated self-managed services for cloud's virtual resources. The authors propose a conceptual model of self-managed services interdependencies and identify static and dynamic factors affecting their automated actions in the context of cloud computing.
