The work on cloud service relocation that is being investigated by the ICCLab was presented at USENIX HotCloud13. In FluidCloud we ask the key question of
“How to intrinsically enable and fully automate relocation of service instances between clouds?“
and present an architecture to realise service relocation. Below you can have a look at the presentation (PDF here) and the paper itself (and eventually a video of the talk) is available at the HotCloud13 proceedings’ site.
The relocation of the ICCLab hardware and the integration of 9 additional nodes is now complete. The whole movement was done within one day thanks to the support of Pietro, Philipp and Michael – Thanks Guys! Now our lab runs 15 compute nodes, 1 controller node and 1 NAS. We will segment this infrastructure to build a development environment including 10 nodes where we can develop and test our work on OpenStack and a production environment including 5 nodes for production purposes. As the next step we are will to redeploy OpenStack by means of automation tools Puppet and Foreman as was presented at the EGI Technical Forum. Let’s see how fast we can deploy 15 nodes from scratch! We’ll be studying, timing and evaluating it!
