Abstract

The right setup of a testbed is important for enabling the rapid development and deployment of cloud services, in particular all the times the testbed hosts more concurrent interactions. This work shows how to configure an environment where more developers insist on it. In particular what tools are indispensable for managing compelling distributed cloud environments. We looked at mature Open Source solutions, performing their smoothed integration. The paper describes all parts necessary for accomplishing complex scenarios, even in a bounded perimeter as the VISION Cloud EU project offering. VISION Cloud represents the reference architecture dealing with Cloud Storage, and our work attempts to provide solutions applied on VISION, but suitable for any type of framework. © 2012 IEEE.
