Design and Evaluation of Quality in Cloud Services/en

Aus Aifbportal

Wechseln zu: Navigation, Suche

For the design and evaluation of Cloud services' and systems' critical qualities, the eOrganisation research group develops solutions to address complex requirements like elastic scalability or adaptive security: single quality properties need to be measurable and comparable and they need to be evaluated considering their trade-offs. A holistic view on quality properties encompasses the view of the service provider (optimizing, e.g., resources) and the view of the service consumer (optimizing, e.g., performance).


Quality Measurement and Benchmarking

In this field the team develops experimental and qualitative methods and tools to determine consistency, elasticity, performance and security of Cloud systems (especially Cloud data bases), as well as Cloud services and applications (for example, processes).

Quality Trade-Offs and Optimization

Qualities depend on each other in a way that induces trade-offs between them (e.g., consistency, availability and partition tolerance). The group experimentally and qualitatively researches these trade-offs and develops methods and tools to optimize and adapt systems to the dynamic requirements of providers and consumers.
