Provenance Issues in Platform-as-a-Service Model of Cloud Computing
Devdatta Kulkarni, Rackspace and The University of Texas at Austin
In this paper we present provenance issues that arise in building Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model of cloud computing. The issues are related to designing, building, and deploying of the platform itself, and those related to building and deploying applications on the platform. These include, tracking of commands for successful software installations, tracking of inter-service dependencies, tracking of configuration parameters for different services, and tracking of application related artifacts. We identify the provenance information to address these issues and propose mechanisms to track it.
