What is it about?

The management of modern enterprise applications, which integrate multiple components, must be suitably coordinated by taking into account all inter-component dependencies and the faults potentially affecting them. We here introduce a novel solution for compositionally modelling the fault-aware management of enterprise applications, based on topology graphs and management protocols. We then show how our model enables automating various useful analyses, from checking the validity of management plans to automatically determining management plans allowing the instance of an application to reach and maintain a desired target configuration.

Why is it important?

To the best of our knowledge, ours is the first approach enabling to model, analyse, and plan the replica-aware management of a multi-component application, while at the same time considering the concurrent management of the instances of its components, and the fact that expected and unexpected faults might happen while such concurrent management is being executed.
