Cloud Interoperability via Quick Enterprise Applications Re-Builds


Nikolai Joukov and Vladislav Shorokhov

Abstract: Cloud interoperability is a new problem that is becoming evident as more cloud providers offer competing clouds and more enterprises migrate their applications into the cloud environments. However, for large enterprises the problem lies in enterprise software and middleware non-interoperability and overall complexity more than in the cloud providers incurred issues. In this paper we analyze cloud interoperability issues for existing enterprise applications based on our substantial enterprise IT transformation experience. We believe that adoption of stricter enterprise application development and maintenance policies and their enforcement coupled with PaaS clouds’ quick middleware provisioning and configuration capabilities will allow easy, predictable, fast, and inexpensive application rebuilds on-demand. This, in turn, will allow much cheaper application transformations, adoption of new technologies, and migrations between various clouds and non-cloud environments. We evaluate our policies based on three real-life applications from large corporations and show that strict application documentation and standardization results in at least an order of magnitude cost reduction of cloud application migrations.

On the Interoperability in Multiple Clouds


Dana Petcu

Abstract: Interoperability between Clouds is a desire of the last half decade to fulfill the dream of apparently unlimited capacity of the interconnected e-infrastructures as well as the elimination of the vendor lock-in. In this paper we try to point towards the missing pieces by identifying the requirements and the degree of their coverage by the existing solutions. Moreover, a particular case, of application interoperability, is studied using a concrete and recent deployable and open-source platform as a service.
