Cloud Orchestration – A Real Business Need
Cloud Computing does not scale well. Such a bold statement may seem incorrect given that according to accepted wisdom, scalability is one of the essential properties that make Cloud Computing so attractive to businesses. Scalability as used here is less about the addition of servers and resources, and more about what is being done today with Cloud Computing and what ‘more’ can be done tomorrow from a true business perspective.|
Also, with the rise of smartphones, tablets and other intelligent devices that are now participating in the complete enterprise ecosystem, interaction patterns between cloud components and consumers become even more complex. Cloud Orchestration and Messaging will help enterprises to achieve seamless integration of business processes spanning multiple applications, clouds and smart devices. Such integrated messaging will not be a “nice to have” requirement, but a “must have” necessity for effective and efficient future business process management, not limited to an Enterprise Service Bus but also addressing Extended Enterprises issues.
This White Paper explores this apparent contradiction and proposes potential solutions based on research conducted by the Atos Scientific Community.
