Atos, as part of the work on CloudWave project, is developing the PriceCost Manager. It is a system able to calculate and visualize the costs and price from a specific application that has been deployed in a cloud. Multi-tenant applications are deployed in the clouds, therefore, all the system has to be thought in a multi-tenant way. We also want to design a system that is able to handle the cost of several cloud platforms as it has been depicted in Figure attached. The tendency is to have federated cloud and or work with different cloud management platforms.
CloudWave empowers cloud infrastructure and their hosted application to transparently collaborate to obtain high levels of service at lower costs.
Minimize Cloud infrastructure costs while meeting customer Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements of hosted applications
