Service selection has been widely investigated as an effective adaptation mechanism that allows a service broker, offering a composite service, to bind each task of the abstract composition to a corresponding implementation, selecting it from a set of candidates. The selection aims typically to fulfill the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of the(More)
In this paper we consider several Software as a Service (SaaS) providers, that offer a set of applications using the Cloud facilities provided by an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider. We assume that the IaaS provider offers a pay only what you use scheme similar to the Amazon EC2 service, comprising flat, on demand, and spot virtual machine(More)
We consider a three-tier architecture for mobile and pervasive computing scenarios, consisting of a local tier of mobile nodes, a middle tier (cloudlets) of nearby computing nodes, typically located at the mobile nodes access points but characterized by a limited amount of resources, and a remote tier of distant cloud servers, which have practically(More)
Service selection has been widely investigated by the SOA research community as an effective adaptation mechanism that allows a service broker, offering a composite service, to bind at runtime each task of the composite service to a corresponding concrete implementation, selecting it from a set of candidates which differ from one another in terms of QoS(More)
The introduction of self-adaptation and self-management techniques in a service-oriented system can allow to meet in a changing environment the levels of service formally defined with the system users in a Service Level Agreement (SLA). However, a self-adaptive SOA system has to be carefully designed in order not to compromise the system scalability and(More)
In this paper we consider a set of Software as a Service (SaaS) providers, that offer a set of Web services using the Cloud facilities provided by an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider. We assume that the IaaS provider offers a pay only what you use scheme similar to the Amazon EC2 service, comprising flat, on demand, and spot virtual machine(More)
Service Oriented Systems (SOSs) based on the SOA paradigm are becoming popular thanks to a widely deployed internetworking infrastructure. They are composed by a possibly large number of heterogeneous third-party subsystems and usually operate in a highly varying execution environment, that makes it challenging to provide applications with Quality of(More)
This paper concerns the smart exploitation of multimodal communication capabilities of underwater nodes to enable reliable and swift underwater networking. To contrast adverse and highly varying channel conditions we define a smart framework enabling nodes to acquire knowledge on the quality of the communication to neighboring nodes over time.
