From Autonomic Computing to Autonomic Networking: An Architectural Perspective
Proceedings of the Fifth IEEE Workshop on Engineering of Autonomic and Autonomous Systems (EASe 2008)
IEEE Computer Society
This paper aims to provide a roadmap on how to extend our understanding of the biological analogy applied to a single computing platform (Autonomic Computing) towards a larger scale of a network supporting distributed application sets. We will draw from our experience in autonomic networking and autonomic management, and discuss how the ACF Architecture Expert’s Group plans to provide architectural specifications and guidelines that allow for the modeling, design, implementation and deployment of an autonomic network.
