This book presents both state-of-the-art research developments and practical guidance on approaches, technologies and frameworks for the emerging cloud paradigm. Topics and features: presents the state of the art in cloud technologies, infrastructures, and service delivery and deployment models; discusses relevant theoretical frameworks, practical approaches and suggested methodologies; offers guidance and best practices for the development of cloud-based services and infrastructures, and examines management aspects of cloud computing; reviews consumer perspectives on mobile cloud computing and cloud-based enterprise resource planning; explores software performance testing, open-source cloudware support, and assessment methodologies for modernization, migration and pre-migration; describes emerging new methodologies relevant to the cloud paradigm, and provides suggestions for future developments and research directions.

















elasticity, agile, flexible and scalable solution to the business world. It provides the users with opportunities to build custom applications on a user-friendly interface without hardware hiccups. However, there is an immense need to identify correct process model for the deployment of cloud-centric environments in order to meet changed business requirement of clients. One solution can never fit all problems; likewise, there is a need of customised cloud for individual businesses and dynamically

multiple migrations can be executed in parallel when they do not lead to SLA violations. To ground our design guidelines to a real Cloud management system implementation, let us conclude this section by presenting some technical insights and seminal experimental results assessing the VM consolidation process in different service scenarios. In our previous work [34], we focused on the evaluation of 7 Management Infrastructures for Power-Efficient Cloud Computing Architectures 149 Fig. 7.5

that is required. In this chapter, we analyse the challenges to develop context-aware cloud services for mobile applications and present a conceptual architecture for context processing and service provisioning in the Platform-as-a-Service layer. We highlight various architectural viewpoints of the presented federated context-processing middleware and round up this chapter with a research road map for the future.

Manager calls the Service Adapter service whenever the context changes. 8.5 Implementation and Evaluation We have recognized a few specialized services on the basis of the use case scenario from Sect. 8.4.1. There are interlinked services running on a mobile device. We have distributed the context-awareness process in nine autonomous services. Figure 8.7 shows the high-level composition and interaction of these services. We are using WSO2 Stratos [47], an open PaaS solution, for implementing

Consulting for a large ERP project involves three levels: systems architecture, business process consulting (primarily re-engineering), and technical consulting (primarily programming and tool configuration activity). A systems architect designs the overall dataflow for the enterprise including the future dataflow plan. A business consultant studies an organization’s current business processes and 9 Potential Concerns and Common Benefits of Cloud-Based Enterprise… 181 matches them to the
