Abstract

Currently, the Cloud landscape is a fragmented, static and shapeless market that hinders the paradigm's ability to fulfil its promise of ubiquitous computing on tap and as a commodity. In this paper, we present our vision of an autonomic self-aware Cloud market platform, and argue that autonomic market platforms for Clouds can step up to the challenge of today's status quo. As our first steps towards achieving this vision, we present a market monitoring methodology, which includes a series of realistic market goals, sets of extractable metrics from a market platform and how to map (i.e. combine and transform) metrics to access goal performance such that autonomic adaption of the market could be undertaken. We have extended a known market simulator for distributed infrastructures (Grid Sim) with relevant sensors. To demonstrate the usefulness of our approach, we simulate a sudden cease in demand for goods in our market platform.
