Sublimated Configuration of Infrastructure as a Service Deployments - MING: A Model- and View-Based Approach for Cloud Datacenters

Ta’id Holmes

Abstract

For establishing the basic cloud service model, a datacenter (DC) needs to deploy an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution. The planning, setup, implementation, and operation of DCs – involving hard- and software – comprises multiple activities. At least, software-related aspects such as IaaS deployment can be automated. Yet, in the forefront of an automated installation extensive configurations need to take place. These configurations often relate to the design and characteristics of the respective DC. Using existing deployment technologies, however, information from various aspects are scattered and tangled. For avoiding respective drawbacks and resulting adverse effects, MING (?) – a model-based approach – is presented. It decouples configuration from automated deployment technologies. This way, various further benefits of model-based engineering are leveraged such as separation of concerns through view-based models, platform independent representation of information, and the utilization of existing deployment technologies through code generation.
