Managing the Cloud Service Lifecycle from the User’s View

Beatrice Moltkau, Yvonne Thoss, Alexander Schill

Abstract

The concept of Cloud Computing has become indispensable in recent years. The use of distributed computing resources facilitates primarily infinite scalability and cost reductions by pay per use agreements. However, the management of cloud services is extensive with regard to the Cloud Service Lifecycle phases. The analysis of operational Cloud Management Systems showed that the scope of managing functionalities is too inconsistent. We present a guideline for the development of a Cloud Management System that supports the essential phases within the Cloud Service Lifecycle from the cloud provider’s and the consumer’s view.
