Managing Applications Across Clouds
Last year GSoC funded a project: Implementing MapReduce in SAGA. This project led to two peer-reviewed papers, on at Cloud 2009 (held in Conjunction with CCGrid) and the other at WGCV (Workshop on Grids Clouds and Virtualization) held in conjunction at GPC. Copies of these papers can be found at:
Based upon Application level Grid-Cloud Interoperability work that ensued from last year's GSoC project, we would like to take the interoperability capabilities of SAGA based applications further. In particular, we would like to develop the basic components so that Application written using SAGA can easily utilize the Open Cloud Consortium's test-bed and infrastructure:
Specifically this would require developing SAGA adaptors to Sector and Sphere. With this development, SAGA based applications could run on "private" Clouds (EC2), public Clouds (opengridconsortium) and Grids. We anticipate complex, hybrid data-intensive applications will need this capability.
