Envisage: Simulating the Cost of Cloud Deployment
Make sure to catch the Envisage demo if you are going to Cloudscape 2016 in Brussels:
- 8 March 15:45-16:15 Mobile Screen S.6 (live)
- 9 March 11:45-12:15 Mobile Screen S.7 (live)
When system design does not take deployment architectures and costs into account, the savings of cloud computing are difficult to realize. The ENVISAGE project develops formal behavioral models that integrate data modeling, control flow, resource usage, and static and dynamic deployment and scaling decisions. Static analysis methods help with establishing confidence and calculating worst-case cost; simulation and visualization tools enable gaining insights into whole-system behavior already during the modeling and design phase.
