Method & Apparatus for Automated Cloud Resource Management

Cloud resource management is complex and cumbersome, involving several low-level tasks for a single resource management operation. Therefore, automated support for translating user-defined management operations onto low-level tasks is essential for simplifying cloud resource management. Many existing products

provide simple scripting facilities to develop configuration/provisioning scripts wherein most of them do not provide automated support for translating high-level user operations to low-level tasks. To that end, the solution that is disclosed here is

provide a system and method to automate cloud resource management operations.

Solution - Details

§ The disclosed solution covers the following features (also depicted in the diagram below):

- Automated keyword recognition


- Keyword translation into user-level operation


- User operation mapping to sequence of user-level tasks


- Task sequence execution

- Task sequence management, including fault management in case of failed tasks

Applications and Merits:

§ This solution puts in place a system for translating user intentions of management operations onto the actual tasks whose implementation can be automated for complex tasks. The complex tasks can be like IPv6 setup for a cluster of nodes in a cloud data center or virutal machine image management.
