Deploying and running applications in multi-cloud environments is a challenging task for a number of reasons: different configuration parameters are needed for differentcloud environments, application's artefacts may vary across technologies or cloud providers, services provided at IaaS level vary from one cloud provider to another. This paper introduces a run-time platform that enables the deploymentand execution of applications on multi-clouds with guaranteed quality of service (QoS), and… Expand
CoMe4ACloud: An end-to-end framework for autonomic Cloud systems
The CoMe4ACloud approach proposes a generic model-based architecture for autonomic management of Cloud systems and derives a generic unique Autonomic Manager capable of managing any Cloud service, regardless of the layer. Expand
A Model-based Architecture for Autonomic and Heterogeneous Cloud Systems
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). Expand

This paper proposes a new approach based on a distributed naming and resource identification service that allows a client to consume or communicate with a resource without having to deal with resource location or discovery protocols. Expand
Supporting the Development and Operation of Multi-cloud Applications: The MODAClouds Approach
An overview of the MODAClouds project is provided and the architecture of the corresponding platform is presented, which relies on model-driven development combined with risk analysis and quality prediction. Expand
MODAClouds: A model-driven approach for the design and execution of applications on multiple Clouds
It is argued that Model-Driven Development can be helpful in this context as it would allow developers to design software systems in a cloud-agnostic way and to be supported by model transformation techniques into the process of instantiating the system into specific, possibly, multiple Clouds.
