Cloud computing offers the potential to dramatically reduce the cost of software services through the commoditization of information technology assets and on-demand usage patterns. However, the complexity of determining resource provision policies for applications in such complex environments introduces significant inefficiencies and has driven the emergence of a new class of infrastructure called Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). In this paper, we present a novel PaaS architecture being developed… 
A Real-time Service Oriented Infrastructure
The approach considers the full lifecycle of service-based systems including service engineering, Service Level Agreement (SLA) negotiation and management, service provisioning and monitoring, and QoS parameters at application, platform and infrastructure levels.
Enabling Platform-As-A-Service through a Consolidated Resource Manager
The paper provides an efficient solution by providing a common resource manager across all the platforms, coupled with administrative and reporting capabilities, further empowered with additional features like security and middleware messaging provided as optional add-ons.
Design and Implementation of a High Performant PaaS Platform for Creating Novel Real-Time Communication Paradigms Cloud computing for Real-Time Multimedia Communication
this paper presents the design and implementation of a Real Time Communication and multimedia processing architecture that uses emerging Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined
A Meta Model for Monitoring Requirements in Cloud Environnment
The need for a design-level modelization of monitoring composed web services in the cloud is highlighted and a meta-model is presented that provides for the specification of QoS requirements, web service level agreements, and monitoring QoS of composite web servicesIn the cloud.
A Systematic Mapping Study on Real-Time Cloud Services
This study focuses on analyzing the current architectures and software techniques that are available at present to incorporate real-time property of the cloud services and investigates the current challenges involved in realizing a predictable real- time behavior of cloud services.
Quantifying Cloud Performance and Dependability
Four system properties are addressed by focusing on elasticity of the cloud service, to accommodate large variations in the amount of service requested, performance isolation between the tenants of shared cloud systems and resulting performance variability, availability of cloud services and systems, and the operational risk of running a production system in a cloud environment.

A new n-dimensional framework is proposed that models the relationship between resource utilisation, resource availability on host servers, and the response-times of services and provides alerts across 94% of QoS violations within the first 14% of execution progress.
On Autonomic Platform-as-a-Service: Characterisation and Conceptual Model
The architectural approach is based on autonomic principles, therefore, its ultimate goal is to reduce human intervention, the cost, and the perceived complexity by enabling the autonomic platform to manage such applications itself in accordance with high-level policies.


Modelling Interactive Real-time Applications on Service Oriented Infrastructures
Techniques developed within IRMOS for modelling and predicting the resource and QoS requirements of interactive media applications on SOIs are presented.
Power-aware provisioning of Cloud resources for real-time services
This work investigates power-aware provisioning of virtual machines for real-time services, and proposes several schemes to reduce power consumption and show their performance throughout simulation results.

Real-Time Virtual Machines
Preliminary experimental results are presented, highlighting how the appropriate use of well-established real-time scheduling strategies may be effective in facing with this challenging issue of guaranteeing appropriate timeliness guarantees.
Initial observations on economics, pricing, and penetration of the internet of things market
Both the appropriate market structure and corresponding pricing schemes need to be well understood to enable a commercial success of sensor-based services and some steps that an evolutionary establishment of this market might have to take are shown.
