A Reliability Assessment Framework for Cloud Applications

Xiaowei Wang, Jens Grabowski

Abstract

Cloud computing enables users to use computing resources, platforms and applications with reduced deployment and maintenance cost. The reliability of cloud applications becomes one of the key concerns of cloud service providers and users. Meanwhile, the deep dependency stack of layered cloud objects makes it challenging to evaluate the reliability of cloud applications. To tackle this problem, we propose a layered dependency graph-based reliability assessment framework. To verify our framework, we conduct an initial case study which shows its feasibility.
