Cloud Platform Layer


Platform Layer

The heterogeneity of the cloud middleware is completely hidden from the upper layers of the infrastructure by the generic cloud access platform that is implemented using the existing CloudBroker Platform (CBP). The CBP provides seamless access to heterogeneous cloud resources via multiple cloud adapters. The majority of required cloud adapters already exist, with the notable exception of the CloudSigma adapter that is developed inside the
project.

At the upper layer of the CloudBroker platform application specific patterns and deployments will be necessary to support the targeted simulation software solutions.
