Managing and Monitoring Elastic Cloud Applications

Abstract

Next generation Cloud applications present elastic features and rapidly scale their comprised resources. Consequently, managing and monitoring Cloud applications is becoming a challenge. This paper showcases the functionality and novel features of: (i) c-Eclipse, a framework for describing Cloud applications along with their elasticity requirements and deploying them on any IaaS provider; and (ii) JCatascopia, a fully-automated, multi-layer, interoperable Cloud monitoring system. Particularly, we demonstrate how a user can manage the full lifecycle of a three-tier web application and observe, in real-time, how an elasticity management platform automatically scales the application based on various userdefined elasticity requirements, workloads and performance metrics.
