Advanced PaaS Layer for exploiting Hybrid-Cloud environment: the INDIGO-DataCloud Solution

Not scheduled


Dr Giacinto Donvito (INFN)


INDIGO has implemented an advanced PaaS layer allowing scientific communities to exploit, in a powerful and high-level way, several heterogeneous computing and data e-infrastructure such as: Private IaaS Cloud, EGI Grid, EGI Federated Cloud, Public Cloud (AWS Amazon, Microsoft Azure).The INDIGO PaaS Layer is implemented with the µServices approach: each service has a specific function and interact with each other with REST APIs. This make easier the development and the deployment: each PaaS instances could be customized with the needed services/components. The components that implements the INDIGO PaaS Layer are: - PaaS Orchestrator - Identity and Access Manager Infrastructure Manager - CloudProviderRanker - Monitoring - Onedata - Mesos - CMDB - SLAM - APEL - Accounting Service CLUES The PaaS layer is able to implement different high-level functionalities: - Improved capabilities in the geographical exploitation of Cloud resources. - Standard interface to access PaaS services. - INDIGO PaaS exploits the TOSCA standard - Support for data requirements in Cloud resource allocations - Resources can be allocated where data is stored - Integrated use of resources coming from both public and private Cloud infrastructures - Deployment, monitoring and automatic scalability of existing applications - Allows the handshake between a user and a site on a given SLA - Describes the QoS for user/group both over a given site or on the PaaS as a whole - Support federated authentication mechanisms (SAML, OpenID connect) - Support for dynamic and elastic clusters of resources - batch systems on-demand (such as HTCondor or Torque) - extensible application platforms (such as Apache Mesos) capable of supporting both application execution and instantiation of long-running services.
