Adaptive Infrastructure meets Adaptive Applications

Abstract: Enterprise class applications such as SAP consist of complex configurations of many interacting components. It requires considerable skill to match the design of an application's component configuration to an appropriate infrastructure configuration design. So even if we have an Adaptive Infrastructure it is hard to adapt such systems because of the difficulty in matching the application and infrastructure configurations. This paper proposes a model that formally links the application and infrastructure configurations. The model takes into account business process, applications, and infrastructure. It allows us to link changes in the business process to necessary and MATCHED changes to applications and infrastructure.
