Abstract

Cloud computing leverages the use of abstracted resources. However, migrating an industrial application to well-known Cloud solutions such as EC2 might be complex and low level expertise is indeed needed. In this use case we present a methodology, based on practical experience matured on the ground, that allows service providers to enable complex applications to the RESERVOIR cloud infrastructure. We also show an example of how a complex business application, such as the SAP ERP 6.0, can be automatically fully deployed and scaled up and down as resource needs change, easing the use of a cloud system for service providers that might experience difficulties or have mental barriers to carry out such task.
