Abstract [en]

Despite the increasing sentiment in industry that automation is a powerful way to reduce cost in the paradigm of cloud computing, there is no established golden-path to approach it. We investigated an approach to performing automation in the constrained scenario of web hosting, with the purpose of producing a software artefact capable of automating the domain.

We establish specific criteria which we care about automating and then produce a software artefact which satisfies the criteria. We establish that our model and example of how this type of performing automation can we done, and that it works.

Further, we introduce an autonomous management strategy in the form of an auto-scaler built for Microsoft Azure Web Apps, for which our assumptions for all concerning real-world applications hold. We prove that the method works by building it, and performing an experiment verifying this fact.

We conclude on arguing that the automation is feasible, but in many cases can be a larger cost than expected. We argue also that the scaling often proposed in literature is technically unfeasible in real-world scenarios, and that our scaler, while simple, works for these scenarios.
