Système d'Administration Autonome Adaptable: application au Cloud

Abstract : Last years have seen the development of cloud computing. The main underlying principle of to externalize the management of companies' IT services in hosting centers which are managed by third party companies. This externalization allows saving costs for the client company, since the resources required to manage these services are mutualized between clients and managed by the hosting company. This orientation implies the management of large scale hosting centers, whose dimension and complexity make them difficult to manage. With the developement of computing infrastructures such as clusters or grids, researchers investigated the design of systems which provides support of an automatized management of these environments. We refer to these system as Autonomic Management Systems (AMS). They aim at providing services which automate administration tasks such as software deployment, fault repair or dynamic dimensioning according to a load. Therefore, in this context, it is natural to consider the use of AMS for the administration of a cloud infrastructure. However, we observe that currently available AMS have been designed to address the requirements of a particular application domain. It should be possible to adapt an AMS according to the considered domain, in particular that of the cloud. Moreover, in the cloud computing area, different requirements have to be accounted: those of the administrator of the hosting center and those of the user of the hosting center (who deploys his application in the cloud). Therefore, an AMS should be adaptable to fulfill such various needs. In this thesis, we investigate the design and implementation of an adaptable AMS. Such an AMS must allow adaptation of all the services it provides, according to the domains where it is used. We next describe the application of this adaptable AMS for the autonomic management of a cloud environment.
