For several years now, scientists have been proposing numerous models for defining anything "as a service (aaS)", including discussions of products, processes, data & information management, and security as a service. In this paper, based on a thorough literature survey, we investigate the vast stream of the state of the art in Everything as a Service (XaaS). We then use this investigation to explore an integrated view of XaaS that will help propose approaches for migrating applications to the…

A Deployable Data as a Service Architecture for Enterprises
TLDR
A deployable DaaS architecture that is based on the as-a-Service principles and especially tackles data management as a service is designed and implemented with a real-world deployment.
Information as a Service on Cloud Computing Technology: A Review
TLDR
Information as a service (IAS), which allows any applications to access all types of information thru using the application interface, is proposed as part of the emerging service and specified service in the cloud technology service evolution.
On the Portability of Applications in Platform as a Service
TLDR
The thesis presents a decision support system for the selection and comparison of suitable cloud platforms, and a heuristic is proposed which can identify potential partners by matching the technological software ecosystem of the providers with the requirements of an application or a user.
Framework Node2FaaS: Automatic NodeJS Application Converter for Function as a Service
TLDR
The Node2FaaS framework is proposed for automatic conversion of applications written in NodeJS to work in a transparent way with the FaaS model, demonstrating significant gains of up to 170% at runtime for applications with high file I/O requirements.
Design support for performance- and cost-efficient (re)distribution of cloud applications
TLDR
The transformation of capital into operational expenditures when using private or public clouds has become a reality and the increase of available cloud services together with the materialization of DevOps methodologies have forced a change in how software is engineered and operated.
IoT Serverless Computing at the Edge: A Systematic Mapping Review
TLDR
This study presents a systematic mapping review of current progress made to solve the remaining open issues in serverless computing, analyzing work published between 01.01.2015 and 01.09.2021.
User-Centric Cloud Service Broker
TLDR
A novel evaluation- aware matching and ranking technique that integrates cloud services evaluation results with their matching andranking against the user QoS requirements for more informed selections of suitable cloud services by taking into consideration the credibility of the cloud service providers.
Designing a cloud architecture for an application with many users
TLDR
The aim of the thesis is to provide a guideline on how to design and implement a cloud architecture solution for an application with many users, and the microservice architecture and the Serverless architecture are assessed to be the most promising architectures for the case.
A Model-based Architecture for Autonomic and Heterogeneous Cloud Systems
TLDR
This paper introduces the designed model-based architecture, and notably its core generic XaaS modeling language, and describes the integration with a constraint solver to be used by the autonomic manager, as well as the interoperability with a Cloud standard (TOSCA).
Openslice: An opensource OSS for Delivering Network Slice as a Service
TLDR
This work presents Openlice a Service based, opensource OSS for delivering NSaaS following emerging standards from SDOs, and strongly believes that such open source solutions make it easier for organizations to enable complex scenarios especially in the are of Non-Public Networks.

The Resource-as-a-Service (RaaS) Cloud
TLDR
This work argues that the Resource-as-a-Service cloud is the likely culmination of recent trends in the construction of IaaS clouds and of the economic forces operating on both providers and clients.
Testing as a Service over Cloud

TLDR
A prototype of TaaS over cloud is developed, the scalability of the platform is evaluated by increasing the test task load, the distribution of computing time on test task scheduling and test task processing over the cloud, and the performance of proposed algorithms are examined.
Big Data Platforms as a Service: Challenges and Approach
TLDR
Cloud-Get is introduced, a distributed package manager that enables the simple installation of distributed services in a cloud computing environment and enables users to instantiate and modify distributed services, including Big Data services, using simple commands.
Infrastructure as a service security: Challenges and solutions
TLDR
This paper presents an elaborated study of IaaS components' security and determines vulnerabilities and countermeasures, and proposes a Security Model for IAAS (SMI) to guide security assessment and enhancement in IaaA layer.
Service Discovery Protocols and Programming
TLDR
Service discovery protocols enable "plug and play" client/server architectures, where clients and services may be introduced into a network and removed at will, without configuration hassles.
Experience in Continuous analytics as a Service (CaaaS)
TLDR
This work proposes a continuous query model over both static relations and dynamic streaming data, which allows a long-standing SQL query instance to run cycle by cycle, each cycle for a chunk of data from the data stream, using a cut-and-rewind mechanism.
Consistency as a Service: Auditing Cloud Consistency
TLDR
This paper presents a novel consistency as a service (CaaS) model, which consists of a large data cloud and multiple small audit clouds, and proposes a two-level auditing architecture, which only requires a loosely synchronized clock in the audit cloud.
