TOSCA is a new standard facilitating platform independent description of Cloud applications. OpenTOSCA is a runtime for TOSCA-based Cloud applications. The runtime enables fully automated plan-based deployment and management of applications defined in the OASIS TOSCA packaging format CSAR. This paper outlines the core concepts of TOSCA and provides a system overview on OpenTOSCA by describing its modular and extensible architecture, as well as presenting our prototypical implementation.

Vinothek - A Self-Service Portal for TOSCA
TLDR
Vinothek is a Web-based Self-Service Portal that hides the technical details of TOSCA Runtimes and provides end users a simple graphical interface to provision Cloud applications on demand.
Reusing cloud-based services with TOSCA
TLDR
This paper presents a methodology to non-intrusively adapt a service template S into a new service template newS which exactly matches a node type N, and hence to easily reuse any actual service modelled by S to deploy cloud-based applications that rely on N.
TOSCA in a Nutshell: Promises and Perspectives
TLDR
The objective of this paper is to provide a compact and easy-to-access introduction to TOSCA, and to discuss possible research directions for TOS CA.
The OpenTOSCA Ecosystem - Concepts & Tools
TLDR
An overview of TOSCA and the OpenTOSCA Ecosystem is given, which consists of standard-compliant tools that enable modeling application topology models and automating the provisioning and management of the modeled applications.
Using Ansible as Part of TOSCA Orchestrator
TLDR
Clouni makes it easy for cloud users to deploy complex topologies and takes TOSCA templates from the user and generates Ansible playbooks, which are then used as a configuration tool for deployment automation.
Sommelier: A Tool for Validating TOSCA Application Topologies
TLDR
This paper illustrates the conditions ensuring the validity of a TOSCA application topology and introduces Sommelier, an open-source validator of TOSca application topologies based on such validity conditions.
Modeling and Automated Deployment of Serverless Applications Using TOSCA
TLDR
This paper introduces an event-driven deployment modeling approach using the standard Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) that fully employs the suggested standard lifecycle to provision and manage multi-cloud serverless applications.
From Monolith to Cloud Architecture Using Semi-automated Microservices Modernization
TLDR
This work proposes a methodology, starting from a source code application, that provides a new architecture for the application oriented to microservices and deployable on Cloud.
Validating TOSCA Application Topologies
TLDR
This paper formalise the conditions that must hold for checking the validity of TOSCA application topologies, and presents an open-source prototype of validator (called SOMMELIER) that implements such conditions.
Streamlining Cloud Management Automation by Unifying the Invocation of Scripts and Services Based on TOSCA
TLDR
The goal of this work is to come up with an approach for unifying the invocation of scripts and services without handling each proprietary interface separately using the Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA).

TLDR
A visual notation for TOSCA is proposed based on established usability research which provides additional concepts for visual modularization and abstraction of large application topologies.
