Learning software agents are able to assist Cloud providers in taking decisions about resource management at any level, as they are able to collect knowledge and improve their performances over time by means of learning strategies. On the other hand Cloud Federations allow providers to share computational infrastructures in order to build a distributed, interoperable multi-cloud context. In this work we present an evolutionary approach based on agent cloning, i.e. a mechanism of agent reproduction allowing providers to substitute an “unsatisfactory” agent acting in a “cloud context” with a clone of an existing agent having a suitable knowledge and a good reputation in the multicloud context. By this approach, cloud agents performances can be improved because they are substituted with agent clones that have shown a better behavior.

Abstract

Learning software agents are able to assist Cloud providers in taking decisions about resource management at any level, as they are able to collect knowledge and improve their performances over time by means of learning strategies. On the other hand Cloud Federations allow providers to share computational infrastructures in order to build a distributed, interoperable multi-cloud context. In this work we present an evolutionary approach based on agent cloning, i.e. a mechanism of agent reproduction allowing providers to substitute an “unsatisfactory” agent acting in a “cloud context” with a clone of an existing agent having a suitable knowledge and a good reputation in the multicloud context. By this approach, cloud agents performances can be improved because they are substituted with agent clones that have shown a better behavior.
