Autonomic computing has received a great deal of attention from the research community in recent years. Many techniques have been proposed to monitor, analyze, and change the system under observation, but less attention has been paid to adapting the autonomic computing loop itself. Based on previous results on the design and implementation of a reference… (More)
Autonomic computing aims to embed automation in IT management software such that it can adapt to changes in the configuration, provisioning, protection, and resource utilization variations of the IT infrastructure at run time. It is, therefore, almost natural to consider this control software framework as being designed with control principles in mind. One… (More)
Software as a service creates the possibility of composing software applications from web services spread across different application domains. To guarantee certain quality of services of the composite service, one can think of two paths ahead: quality of service negotiation and guarantee prior to service deployment and bindings; or a more speculative and… (More)
The increasing heterogeneity and complexity of the Information Technology infrastructure encompassing hardware and software applications, services and networks, led to complex, unmanageable and insecure systems. Correspondingly, new approaches in regards to the IT infrastructure automation and operation have been investigated. Autonomic computing has been… (More)
Autonomic systems received lately a great deal of interest from the research and industrial communities due to their ability to configure, optimize, heal and protect themselves with little to no human intervention. Such systems must be able to analyze themselves and their environment in order to determine how best they can achieve the high-level goals and… (More)
