Project Cloud TRANSIT - Or to Simplify Cloud-native Application Provisioning for SMEs by Integrating Already Available Container Technologies

Download it on ResearchGate.

Abstract: Cloud computing enables to deliver innovative services very agile and at world-scale. Even very small companies with access on first class cloud engineering knowledge can create exponential business growth. Companies like Instagram or Netflix proofed that impressively. But, operating cloud-native applications is extremely challenging and overburdens the capabilities of most SME IT-departments. Sadly, most of current research solution proposals do not focus on these micro or small companies intentionally. Instead of that, this contribution presents a concept for an elastic cloud runtime platform, which is intentionally designed for such small companies. This elastic platform shall provide a transferable, vendor lock-in avoiding, elastic, manageable and easy-to-adapt cloud runtime environment (not only) for SMEs, small research groups or non-profit organizations.
