Abstract
The problem of reallocating available and appropriate computing resources to a given application has been addressed in many enterprise environments through the use of automated provisioning systems. Commercial solutions such as RLX Technologies Control Tower (now owned by HP) offer blade-server based data centers the ability to re-provision systems based on various criteria predefined by a central manager. This SBIR defines requirements for end-to-end solutions that can migrate mission applications between related remote computing systems given both predefined policies and learned actions. While some commercial provisioning solutions can address application migration, they are generally not designed around learning agents. Instead, they focus primarily on defined policies to apply provisioning and migration actions. CEI proposes a system that utilizes techniques common in enterprise provisioning systems integrated with methods for implementing learning agents that can autonomously make decisions about application migration. These decisions will be based on metadata from remote hosts related to system health, resource utilization, location with respect to application archives, community memberships and defined policies from a central authority.
