English abstract:
Cloud computing is the result of the convergence of several
concepts, ranging from virtualization, distributed application
design, Grid computing, and enterprise IT management.
Efficient management of Cloud computing infrastructures
faces with the contradicting goals like unlimited scalability,
provision of Service Level Agreements (SLAs), extensive
use of virtualization, energy efficiency and minimization
of the administration overhead by humans. Thus, autonomic
computing seems to be one of the promising paradigms for
the implementation of the management infrastructures for
Clouds. However, currently available autonomic systems do
not consider the characteristics of Clouds, e.g., virtualization
layer, and thus are not easily applicable to Cloud infrastructures.
In this paper we discuss first steps towards revealing
the current MAPE (Monitoring, Analysis, Planning, Execution)
loops for the application to Cloud infrastructures.
We present novel techniques for the adequate monitoring of
Clouds, discuss the approach for the knowledge management
and present our solutions for facilitating SLA generation and
