CloudWave is an Integrated Project funded by the European Commission whose aim is to provide a new powerful foundation for the development, deployment, and management of Cloud-based services. CloudWave will develop a set of software components that have to be integrated into a single multi-layer Cloud stack based on OpenStack. During the project, a testbed environment allows project partners to exert full control over deployed componentry and collaborate on development. Among testbed requirements, the most interesting ones include providing a flexible infrastructure capable of emulating several multi-node Cloud environments and enabling the automatic deployment of CloudWave artifacts into such environment during integration phases. This paper provides a high-level description of the testbed design and implementation focusing on the technologies exploited to meet such requirements. © 2015 IEEE.
