Multi-level Adaptations in a CloudWave Infrastructure: A Telco Use Case

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 567)


CloudWave is a FP7 EU project whose aim is delivering novel technologies and methods for improving both the development of Cloud services and the management of their operation and execution. Such goal is reached by providing mechanisms and policies for coordinating multiple adaptations both at the level of the Cloud infrastructure and at the level of the hosted applications. In this paper, we describe the CloudWave Telco application use case and we provide a proof of concept discussing how the QoS experienced by the application users can be improved thanks to the technologies provided by CloudWave.



The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement Nr. 610802 (CloudWave).
