Middleware for a CLEVER Use of Virtual Resources in Federated Clouds
Keywords: Cross Cloud Computing; XMPP; Fault Tolerance; Virtual Infrastructure Management; clusters.
Nowadays Cloud Computing is becoming an interesting distributed computation infrastructure able to strongly leverage the concept of Virtualization of physical resources. This paper deals with the opportunity for managing Virtualization Infrastructures in Federated scenarios. In particular, the middleware we are introducing presents several features enabling an useful and easy management of private/hybrid clouds and provides simple and easily accessible interfaces to interact with different ``interconnected'' clouds. In that context, one of the main challenges it is necessary to address is the capability that systems need to interact together, maintaining separated their own domains and the own administration policies. A Cloud middleware has been designed, we named it CLEVER, and this paper describes the architecture in each part. Several UML schemas highlight the relevant complexity of our new architecture. In the current status of the work, a primitive prototype, integrating some features of the whole architecture, has been developed as far software classes implementing the basic functionalities.
