Apex Lake: A Framework for Enabling Smart Orchestration
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the Industrial Track of the 16th International Middleware Conference, New York, USA: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
The introduction of a Software-defined infrastructures brings additional challenges to the management of cloud infrastructure. With the impending convergence of telecommunications and cloud infrastructures, datacenters become an essential part of an overall integrated environment. The potential scale of such environments has significant implications as traditional orchestration approaches cannot scale appropriately. However, the combination of infrastructure topology, fine-grained operational data and advanced analytics, has the potential to deliver a scalable approach to facilitate orchestration and resource management. In this paper we introduce Apex Lake, a framework designed to address the question of "how to efficiently define and maintain a physical and logical resource and service landscape enriched by operational data, to support orchestration for optimized service delivery?" We also demonstrate with a use-case illustrating how functionalities provided by Apex Lake can be used dealing with performance anomalies.
