LISA 2002 - Technical Program Abstract

Application Aware Management of Internet Data Center Software

Alain Mayer - CenterRun, Inc.
Pp. 33-46 of the Proceedings of LISA '02: Sixteenth Systems Administration Conference,
(Berkeley, CA: USENIX Association, 2002).


We have built a comprehensive solution to address the management aspects of deployment and analysis of applications in Internet Data Centers. Our work was motivated by the high total cost of ownership of operating such centers, largely due to the variety of applications and their distinctive management requirements. We have chosen an approach that encapsulates application specific knowledge (is application aware) and deployed it in a number of corporate Internet Data Centers. Operations staff found substantial cost reduction in managing applications using our approach.
