Technical Paper – Cloud Simulator for Scalability Testing
Hybrid Clouds make use of multiple cloud storage options due to performance, security, etc. Some of the major challenges are to manage distributed cloud storage data, view them in consolidated and drive automatic placement of data onto various cloud storages in a seamless manner. We present the architecture of the framework which is in sync with the concepts proposed in the FedFS (Federated File System Framework), where servers of different protocols can form and serve a common namespace
Overall the system offers a distributed and federated cloud storage, with benefits like uniform namespace and multi-protocol access to the data, which could be a key for distributed applications and deployments. This would make the adoption of hybrid cloud seamless and easy.
