  • Prof. Stefan Wesner: CACTOS - Context-Aware Cloud Topology Optimisation and Simulation


User demand and new technologies are driving a drastic increase in cloud infrastructure scale, heterogeneity and complexity. The demand for better energy efficiency has led to a variety of technological options to build servers from different CPU architectures as well as specialised options for highly parallel tasks such as manycore systems or General Purposed GPUs. At the same time, service provisioning has evolved from Web Services and infrastructure virtualisation to Clouds, which is conceptually very similar to the evolution from traditional server hosting to more interactive services (e.g. remote rendering or gaming).

This talk gives an overview of the European Research Project CACTOS and its goals and plans to support energy and performance efficient realization of cloud computing and covers principles, methods and technologies that are targeted to realize this vision. It covers realtime monitoring and analytics of infrastructure as information basis, standards and technologies that can be used to implement these methods such as the CIMI Standard, Software Defined Networking and other information models.
