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.

Execution Analytics

Improves existing cloud monitoring solutions with a more holistic and efficient approach. Unified monitoring consolidates infrastructure vs. application data, as well as virtual infrastructure vs. physical hardware. Programmable monitoring enhances filtering and delivery of data for analysis.

Coordinated Adaptation

Reconfigures the application and infrastructure in real-time to compensate for a variety of performance factors, resulting in an increasingly resilient, automated and optimized cloud deployment.

Feedback-driven Development

Advances current DevOps solutions with developer-oriented data based on its innovative monitoring. It mixes automation (coordinated adaptation) with customizable feedback for improved agile development, resulting in quicker development cycles and more reliable cloud applications.

IBM Haifa team working on the Risk Analysis engine

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.
