TOWARDS THE NEXT GENERATION OF MODEL DRIVEN CLOUD PLATFORMS

Javier Esparza-Peidro, Francesc D. Muñoz-Escoí

Abstract

Current cloud platforms are based on two mainstream models: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Both approaches entail strenghts and weaknesses that we collect and present in this paper and we conclude the need to devise a new approach, based on graphical models, to overcome the imposed limitations. This model driven approach is introduced and slightly described, highlighting the importance of a comprehensive scalable modeling language and uncovering new research lines for designing self-manageable cloud platforms.
