Executing Model-Based Applications
AUTHORS: Lutz Schubert, Jörg Domaschka, Daniel Baur / CGW14
The current cloud landscape is highly heterogeneous caused by a vast number of cloud offerings by different providers. This hinders the selection of a cloud provider and its divergent offerings based on the requirements of an application and ultimately its deployment. This paper introduces a model based execution-ware that helps coping with these challenges by allowing the deployment of applications in a multi-cloud environment, based on a high-level model created by the user. Based on our experiences with building an initial prototype, we discuss the fundamental challenges and solution approaches that the multi-cloud environment holds.
