Towards a fault-resilient cloud management stack

Abstract

Cloud management stacks have become a new important layer in cloud computing infrastructure, simplifying the configuration and management of cloud computing environments. As the resource manager and controller of an entire cloud, a cloud management stack has significant impact on the fault-resilience of a cloud platform. However, our preliminary study on the fault-resilience of OpenStack—an open source state-of-the-art cloud management stack—shows that such an emerging software stack needs to be better designed and tested in order to serve as a building block for fault-resilient cloud environments. We discuss the issues identified by our fault-injection tool and make suggestions on how to strengthen cloud management stacks.
