A First Step to Cloud Infrastructure Cost Estimation in Early Stages of Web Development

Rubén Martín, Juan Carlos Preciado, Roberto Rodriguez-Echeverria, José María Conejero, Fernando Sánchez-Figueroa


Currently, the cost of cloud computing infrastructures for Web applications is calculated in deployment and production phases. Recently, the scientific community is offering several methodologies to calculate the most suitable infrastructure at these stages. On the other hand, the Model Driven Web Engineering is taking advantages of code generation from Design level. With both concepts in the scene, in this work we show the first steps toward an approach to estimate the production costs in cloud computing infrastructures at Design phase.
