Fully Distributed Service Configuration Management

Murray, Paul; Goldsack, Patrick


Keyword(s): configuration management; data centre; peer to peer; dependability; security

Abstract: Configuration management in today's data centers is largely a human activity. Where automation does exist it is usually implemented by centralized management tools that coordinate configuration actions across the entire infrastructure and applications. These systems are limited in scale, reliability, and security. We propose that dependable service configuration management is more naturally implemented by a loose federation of fully distributed and self discovering management systems that interact through controlled information exchange.
