Analyse und Integration von Storage-Clustern in elastische Container Plattformen

Abstract: Flexibility and scalability of cloud computing are two strong arguments to approve a change in the traditional IT infrastructure. Cloud-native application experts also consider the fact that companies are inevitably entering the dependency on cloud providers through non-standardized, manufacturerspecific interfaces (vendor lock-in). A change between cloud providers is difficult to calculate and can only be carried out with high personnel and financial expenses. Elastic container platforms provide a solution because they can be used by different cloud providers independently of nonstandardized, manufacturer-specific interfaces. A cluster deployer that automatically creates a compute cluster according to the user’s requirements has already been developed. As the Cluster Deployer has been able to provide only stateless applications with a provider-independent application, a storage cluster extension that supports stateful applications has been implemented as part of the work. To this end, existing storage cluster solutions were examined and compared with each other. The work describes the implementation of CephFS, Flocker and GlusterFS. In addition, the migration capability between two cloud providers was evaluated.
