4Inception: Towards a Nested Cloud Architecture 4Inception Clouds are built entirely on top of the virtual resources
5acquired from today’s clouds, and provide nested VMs to end users.
6
7Inception Clouds enable:
8
9- Acceleration of continuous integration for open-source cloud
10 management software such as OpenStack
11
12- Hypervisor flexibility: VM live migration, VM replication for high
13 availability, instant VM spawning under high load demand, intrusion
14 detection by customizing Dom0 firewall...
15
16- App-specific resource allocation: customize subscription ratio, VM
17 consolidation
18
19- Low operation overhead: no physical metals, therefore no worry on
20 issues like cooling, power, cabling, rack design, malfunctioned
21 hardware replacement, data center real estate
22
23- Spanning across multiple providers: both private and public clouds
24 over geographically wide area
25
26Essentially, Inception Clouds enable entire control of your cloud,
27with even less operation overhead.
