Auto-scaling Using TOSCA Infrastructure as Code.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic


Autoscaling cloud infrastructures still remains a challenging endeavour during orchestration, given the many possible risks, options, and connected costs. In this paper we discuss the options for defining and enacting autoscaling using TOSCA standard templates and its own policy definition specifications. The goal is to define infrastructure blueprints to be self-contained, executable by an orchestrator that can take over autonomously all scaling tasks while maintaining acceptable structural and non-functional quality levels.
