Architecture Management of OTF Computing Markets
Participants of On-The-Fly Computing markets (OTF markets) include (human) end-users (called customers) and various forms of service providers such as OTF service providers, platform operators and Compute Center operators. And the market and execution infrastructure especially involves descriptive, publishing, search, matching, composition and also execution services. Thus overall, the OTF market itself is a complex, integrated system based on an architecture that is exactly as complex. Because there are many possible forms of OTF markets, a holistic view of market architectures is necessary. The targets are to reach a uniform understanding of OTF markets and to facilitate instantiation and a "fast", yet complete and consistent, implementation of corporate- and market-specific requirements. In general, along the guidelines of the BizDevOps principle, this follows a tight integration of business (Biz), development (Dev) and execution (Ops) in OTF markets. The goal of this project is thus to abstract from the experience and knowledge gained during the first and the new funding period in order to develop an architectural framework for OTF markets.
