Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Cloud Service Description Language (CSDL), initiative and discourse, is concentrated to deploy applications on various cloud platforms without modifying source-code. Semantic topology and orchestration of applications provides practical advantage for service providers with ability of interoperability, portability and unified interfaces. However, this has also resulted problems for consumers to identify the appropriate services spread over swarm platforms. The advantage, with common CSDL such as Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA), becomes problematic for consumers. Service providers will have different technical and business details such as: discovery, pricing, licensing or composition depending upon deployed platform; therefore, selection of service becomes challenging and requires human effort. Service Broker design is presented for TOSCA framework only; however, the suggested scheme is generic and adaptable to accommodate similar standards of CSDL.
