Cloud computing enables access to an almost unlimited amount of resources combined with usage-based accounting. However, due to their design a lot of applications are not able to exploit the elasticity provided by the cloud. In this paper, we introduce several mechanisms that allow exploitation of the component structure of applications in order to scale them in a cloud computing cluster. We present our OSGi-inspired component framework COSCA that automatically manages elastic deployment of… CONTINUE READING
