FUNCTIONAL DOMAIN CONCEPTS IN THE MODELLING OF CLOUD STRUCTURES AND THE BEHAVIOUR OF INTEGRATED POLICY-BASED SYSTEMS THROUGH THE USE OF ABSTRACTION CLASSES

Jonathan Eccles, George Loizou

Abstract

We succinctly summarise the various current approaches encountered in Policy-Based Control of Functional Networking within Cloud Structures by integrating these concepts with those of Profile generation, and generic environment representation, based on Entity-Relationship (ER) and Class-Based Modelling. The subsequent problems that this integration gives rise to are identified and discussed. We present a generic solution to these problems, which has been partially implemented, and show how this work is being extended using the concept of Abstraction Classes. We indicate further work to be undertaken in this area.
