AppScale Design and Implementation


We present the design and implementation of AppScale, an open source extension to the Google AppEngine (GAE) Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud technology. Our extensions build upon the GAE SDK to facilitate distributed execution of GAE applications over Xen-based clusters, including Infrastructureas-a-Service (IaaS) cloud systems such as Amazon’s AWS/EC2 and Eucalyptus. AppScale provides a framework with which researchers can investigate the interaction between PaaS and IaaS systems as well as the inner workings of, and new technologies for, PaaS cloud technologies using real GAE applications.
