Fine-grained elasticity control of cloud services has to deal with multiple elasticity perspectives (quality, cost, and resources). We propose a cloud services elasticity control mechanism that considers the service structure for controlling the cloud service elasticity at multiple levels, by firstly defining an abstract composition model for cloud services(More)
This paper presents a new technique to recover structure and motion from a large number of images acquired by an intrinsically calibrated perspective camera. We describe a method for computing reliable camera motion parameters that combines a camera–dependency graph, which describes the set of camera locations and the feasibility of pairwise motion(More)
Elasticity in cloud computing is a complex problem, regarding not only resource elasticity but also quality and cost elasticity, and most importantly, the relations among the three. Therefore, existing support for controlling elasticity in complex applications, focusing solely on resource scaling, is not adequate. In this paper we present SYBL - a novel(More)
Cloud computing has enabled a wide array of applications to be exposed as elastic cloud services. While the number of such services has rapidly increased, there is a lack of techniques for supporting cross-layered multi-level monitoring and analysis of elastic service behavior. In this paper we introduce novel concepts, namely elasticity space and(More)
Various complex cloud services have to be deployed in multiple heterogeneous clouds, due to the service requirements for particular functionalities from specific clouds. In order to control these cloud services, we need to monitor and control the various units deployed across multiple clouds, dealing with cloud-specific protocols to support an end-to-end(More)
With the increasing cloud popularity, substantial effort has been paid for the development of emerging elastic cloud services, consisting of different units distributed among virtual machines/containers in different clouds. Due to the software stack and deployment complexity in single and multi-cloud scenarios, developing and managing such services is(More)
While cloud computing has enabled applications to be designed as elastic cloud services, there is a lack of tools and techniques for monitoring and analysing their elasticity at multiple levels, from the service level to the underlying virtual infrastructure. In this paper, we focus on monitoring and evaluating elasticity of cloud services, crucial for(More)
Complex cloud services rely on different elasticity control processes to deal with dynamic requirement changes and workloads. However, enforcing an elasticity control process to a cloud service does not always lead to an optimal gain in terms of quality or cost, due to the complexity of service structures, deployment strategies, and underlying(More)
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) should support the design, deployment, execution, test and monitoring of native elastic systems constructed from elastic service units based on multi-dimensional elasticity requirements. In this paper, we discuss fundamental building blocks for enabling multi-dimensional elasticity programming of software-defined elastic(More)
To optimize the cost and performance of complex cloud services under dynamic requirements , workflows and diverse cloud offerings, we rely on different elasticity control processes. An elasticity control process, when being enforced, produces effects in different parts of the cloud service. These effects normally evolve in time and depend on workload(More)
