Abstract

Infrastructure cloud systems offer basic functionalities only for managing complex virtual infrastructures. These functionalities demand low-level understanding of applications and their infrastructural needs. Recent research has identified several techniques aimed at enabling the semi-automated management and using applications that span across multiple virtual machines. Even with these efforts however, a truly flexible and end-user oriented approach is missing. This paper presents the One Click Cloud Orchestrator that not only allows higher level of automated infrastructure management than it was possible before, but it also allows end-users to focus on their computational problems instead of the complex cloud infrastructures needed for their execution. To accomplish these goals the paper reveals the novel building blocks of our new orchestrator from the components closely related to infrastructure cloud to the ways virtual infrastructures are modeled. Finally, we show our initial evaluation and study on how the orchestrator fulfills the high level requirements of end-users.
