An approach for virtual appliance distribution for service deployment

Gabor Kecskemeti, Gabor Terstyanszky, Peter Kacsuk, Zsolt Neméth
2011 Future generations computer systems  
The virtual machine instantiation process is highly dependent on the size and availability of the virtual appliance that is maintained by service developers.  ...  On Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud systems deployable services are encapsulated in virtual appliances. Services are deployed by instantiating virtual machines with their virtual appliances.  ...  There are two distinct ways to offer this environment: (i) with the Software as a Service [8] approach the vendor deploys and maintains the software within the administrative domain of the vendor, and  ...

Contextualization: Providing One-Click Virtual Clusters

Katarzyna Keahey, Tim Freeman
2008 2008 IEEE Fourth International Conference on eScience  
As virtual appliances become more prevalent, we encounter the need to stop manually adapting them to their deployment context each time they are deployed.  ...  We examine appliance contextualization needs and present architecture for secure, consistent, and dynamic contextualization, in particular for groups of appliances that must work together in a shared security  ...  broker to deploy virtual clusters.  ...

Deploying Database Appliances in the Cloud

Ashraf Aboulnaga, Kenneth Salem, Ahmed A. Soror, Umar Farooq Minhas, Peter Kokosielis, Sunil Kamath
2009 IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin  
In these clouds, users are given access to virtual machines on which they can install and run arbitrary software, including database systems.  ...  Users can also deploy database appliances on these clouds, which are virtual machines with pre-installed pre-configured database systems.  ...  A common model for deploying software in virtual machine environments is the virtual appliance model. A virtual appliance is a VM image with a pre-installed pre-configured application.  ...

Virtual machine contracts for datacenter and cloud computing environments

Jeanna Matthews, Tal Garfinkel, Christofer Hoff, Jeff Wheeler
2009 Proceedings of the 1st workshop on Automated control for datacenters and clouds - ACDC '09  
Virtualization is an important enabling technology for many large private datacenters and cloud computing environments.  ...  We explore use cases for this approach and argue that it is an essential step towards automated control and management of virtual machines in large datacenters and cloud computing environments.  ...  The person deploying a virtual appliance is best suited to know about the runtime environment and their intention for deploying the VM.  ...

Towards multi-application public interactive displays

Tomas Lindén, Tommi Heikkinen, Vassilis Kostakos, Denzil Ferreira, Timo Ojala
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 International Symposium on Pervasive Displays - PerDis '12  
We argue that to develop multi-application public displays, then services generally need to be easy to develop, robust, and be easy to deploy and maintain.  ...  In addition, the Web and its set of enabling technologies are attractive for realizing applications for public displays.  ...  Additionally, by using a Unix-like OS (Linux) for our virtual appliance we are also able to ease remote maintenance.  ...
