CloudWave is an FP7 project in cloud management. In this training event, speakers from the project consortium will present not only the main innovations of the project, but will also provide tutorials on some of today's leading cloud computing technologies, such as OpenStack, Docker and New Relic. The event will consist of a mixture of talks and demonstrations.
CloudWave is an EU-funded research project that is enabling a next generation of cloud infrastructure operations and agile development for their hosted applications.
Our approach dynamically adapts cloud services to their environment, resulting in improved service quality and optimized resource use. This is supported with an enhanced cloud monitoring that provides holistic analytics of IaaS and SaaS layer services running on the cloud, leading to CloudWave’s innovative, automated adaptation of the infrastructure and application, as well as enabling DevOps-like data and interfaces for the developer.
What's New in CloudWave
One of very important aspects of each project from the industrial point of view is that how to introduce the use cases and benefits of the project to stakeholders.
IBM's research in "Predictive Elasticity in Clouds" is aimed at improving the performance, while lowering the cost, of cloud-hosted applications by deriving a better initial allocation of resources and placement of the application.
First version of the programme that will be presented by CloudWave team during the ESOCC Conference has already been announced on the official page of the event. 5th European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing will be held in Vienna, Austria on 5th – 7th of September, 2016.
Two CloudWave papers were presented by CloudWave partner University of Duisburg-Essen at the 38th International Conference of Software Engineering (ICSE). ICSE is the world’s largest and most important software engineering conference and took place in Austin, Texas, from May 14-22, 2016.
Philipp Leitner (representing UZH) has given an invited lecture at the Swiss Open Cloud Day 2016. In front of an audience of representatives from more than 50 small and large Swiss enterprises, Philipp has spoken about predictability of IaaS clouds and about the difficulty of providing guaranteed Quality-of-Service in today’s real-life clouds.
As part of CloudWave's Feedback Driven Development (FDD), IBM is developing an advanced methodology for fuzz testing that leverages the power of static analysis combined with genetic mutation techniques.
Engaged in CloudWave project, Jürgen Cito (currently a PhD student at University of Zurich) together with Vincenzo Ferme (a Ph.D. candidate at the Università della Svizzera Italiana) have presented a tutorial on how to use Docker for reproducible science at the International Conference on Web Engineering in Lugano.
The CloudWave-funded paper "Towards Quality Gates in Continuous Delivery and Deployment” has received the Best Short Paper award at this year’s International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC). Gerald Schermann from CloudWave partner University of Zurich has presented the paper in Austin, TX.
IBM Haifa is introducing novel combinatorial coverage based metrics for deciding upon automated Cloud infrastructure adaptation. Our approach utilizes a Combinatorial Testing engine, traditionally used for testing at the development phase, in order to measure the load behavior of a system in production.
