D-Tunes: Configuration Engine For Geo-Replicated Cloud Storage, Jiawei Wang, Sanjay Rao Oct 2013

D-Tunes: Configuration Engine For Geo-Replicated Cloud Storage, Jiawei Wang, Sanjay Rao

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

When developing a web-based application, developers are facing stringent requirements to balance the latency, scalability and availability for their cloud database. Application developers need a specific replication configuration strategy based on the requirement of their application. To deal with this problem, some geo-replicated cloud strategy systems have emerged recently, like Cassandra. This project serves to design a web tool that can help configure the best replication strategies for geo-distributed data stores, which uses quorum-based protocols. Currently, our web tool D-Tunes, require a minimum input from users and generate specific scripts based on the inputs user provided. The program running these ...


Collaborative Policy-Based Autonomic Management In Iaas Clouds, Omid Mola Sep 2013

Collaborative Policy-Based Autonomic Management In Iaas Clouds, Omid Mola

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

With the increasing number of "machines" (either virtual or physical) in a computing environment, it is becoming harder to monitor and manage these resources. Relying on human administrators, even with tools, is expensive and the growing complexity makes management even harder. The alternative is to look for automated approaches that can monitor and manage computing resources in real time with no human intervention. One of the approaches to this problem is policy-based autonomic management. However, in large systems having one single autonomic manager to manage everything is almost impossible. Therefore, multiple autonomic managers will be needed and these will need ...
