1st International Workshop on Enterprise Cloud Computing: Solutions and Strategies - ECCSS 2012

18 - 21 April, 2012 - Porto, Portugal

In conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science - CLOSER 2012

Zaigham Mahmood, University of Derby, United Kingdom


Cloud Computing is becoming a reality for large enterprises as it promises benefits such as reduced costs, on-demand availability of services, use of services and infrastructures as and when required and re-allocation of costs from capital investment to operational expenditure. Recent reports suggest that Enterprises are moving beyond experimentation and beginning to develop management software to deal with scaled Cloud environments and the enterprise-level policies for dealing with Public and Hybrid Clouds. However, there are also many challenges that hinder the full realization of the potential that Cloud infrastructures offer. Faced with this, an Enterprise Cloud Architect needs to be able to correctly relate the enterprise information system architectures (such as application, information and technology architectures) to the Cloud characteristics of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). It is important that the inherent issues, limitations and barriers to efficient development and deployment of Cloud Infrastructures are well understood so that Enterprise can use the Cloud infrastructures and capabilities to align and advance their IT strategies with their business missions more effectively.

The proposed workshop aims to present researched articles to describe and explore Enterprise Cloud Computing principles, infrastructures, technologies and methodologies. It also aims to investigate the issues inherent in Cloud approaches and limitations with respect to frameworks, methodologies and technologies and present solutions and strategies. A secondary objective is to explore synergies between Service Oriented Architectures, Grid Computing Frameworks and Enterprise Cloud Computing and discuss these with a view to suggesting recommendations and best practices for Enterprise Architects and business managers.

Topics of Interest:

Recommended topic areas include, though not limited to, the following:
• Architectures for enterprise clouds
• Principles, concepts and methodologies for enterprise cloud computing
• Tools, technologies and frameworks for enterprise cloud computing
• Enterprise architectures such as application, information and technology architectures
• Synergies between SOA, Grid Computing and Cloud Infrastructures
• Quality of Service (QoS) models
• 'Elastic' and on-demand allocation and management of cloud-based resources
• Benefits, issues and limitations of enterprise clouds
• Solutions and strategies relevant to enterprise clouds
• Security, data integrity and legal issues relating to enterprise clouds
• Management, monitoring and governance issues
• Portability of architectures, applications and data between cloud providers
• Reliability and maintenance of cloud-based business architectures
• Architectures for Software, Platforms and Infrastructures as Services
• Network architectures using Storage Clouds
• Case studies in relation to designing, building and using Cloud infrastructure
• Novel application architectures, best practices, experience reports and surveys
