English abstract:
CELAR (Cloud ELAsticity pRovisining) delivers a fully automated system that performs elastic resource provisioning to Cloud applications. To this extent, CELAR provides a complete software stack that adaptively regulates the efficient allocation of resources to applications according to predefined consumerīs elastic constraints or application descriptions in a multi‐grained manner.

In this tutorial we will present the lifecycle of elastic Cloud applications deployed and automatically scaled through the CELAR platform. The audience will be able to see through a comprehensive GUI a representative cycle of application description/submission/monitoring/management through CELAR; the main point of this tutorial will be to showcase the ability to automatically scale cloud resources to meet user‐provided performance criteria.

Target Audience: This tutorial targets both Cloud vendors and Cloud users of any expertise as well as Cloud developers and it is intended to be accessible to audiences at all levels. In particular, this tutorial is divided into three parts. The first part is introductory and intended to give an overview of Cloud elasticity provisioning. The second part discusses the tools that have been developed within CELAR platform. The third part focuses on presenting two relevant elasticity‐demanding use cases.
