ARGON: A Tool for Modeling Cloud Resources

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10797)


Configuration Management Tools (CMTs) have achieved automate the orchestration of infrastructure provisioning in the Cloud. However, CTMs are managed through script languages in a manually intensive manner. As a result, CMTs management is a time-consuming and error-prone activity. In a previous work, to face this issue, we have presented ARGON tool which models the cloud infrastructure and generate scripts for managing the CMTs. In this paper, we propose an extension of ARGON tool with functionalities both to modeling computing, storage, networking and elasticity in the Cloud and to model the middleware needed for the proper operation of cloud-based software applications.
