DCCSOA: A Dynamic and Customizable Cloud Architecture and its Applications for Mobile Users

Abstract: This talk will highlight our recent studies on cloud computing architecture, and will review some case studies of data privacy protection for mobile users through the proposed cloud architecture. The talk is divided into two parts as follows. The first part of the talk introduces a dynamic cloud computing service-oriented architecture (DCCSOA) that alleviates associated issues with standardization and customization. DCCSOA uses a single layer, which is called Template-as-a-Service (TaaS), to provide: (i) a single service layer for interaction with all resources, and major cloud services (e.g., IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and *aaS); (ii) a standardization for existing services, and future *aaS across heterogonous cloud environments, and finally it provides (iii) a customizable architecture which can be modified on-demand by a cloud vendor, and its partners to provide flexibility on cloud computing systems. A comparison between DCCSOA and previous studies show that DCCSOA provides customization and standardization for cloud services with minimal modifications. The second part of the talk reviews some implemented case studies of DCCSOA, such as implementation of a light-weight data privacy schema on DCCSOA for mobile users. It discusses how DCCSOA customizes, and standardize the cloud architecture while preserving users’ data privacy for handheld devices in healthcare systems.
