Cloud computing is becoming a relatively mature paradigm in the ICT landscape. In light of the growing appetite for resources and service levels on par with user expectations, multi-cloud scenarios are becoming the next frontier in the usage of distributed datacenters for private and hybrid Cloud scenarios. Application deployment in particular is a noteworthy feature to be evaluated as microservices become mainstream in adoption. Especially so when considered jointly with orchestration services; indeed OpenStack, as the most widely adopted Cloud middleware among the OpenSource community, features an orchestration subsystem, and may orchestrate the deployment of applications and services. In this work the authors will describe an architecture, developed within the H2020 BEACON project, for a standardized approach to orchestrated application deployment in multi-Cloud OpenStack-based setups, with TOSCA providing the specifications. © 2017 IEEE.
