Abstract Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing has transform the way we think of acquiring resources by introducing a simple change: allowing users to lease computational resources from the cloud provider’s datacenter for a short time by deploying virtual machines (VMs) on these resources. It is based on a lazy transfer scheme coupled with object versioning that handles snapshotting transparently in a hypervisor-independent fashion. One of those challenges is the need to deploy a large number (hundreds or even thousands) of VM instances simultaneously. With datacenters growing rapidly and configurations becoming heterogeneous. This paper addresses these challenges by proposing a virtual file system specifically optimized for virtual machine image storage. such as suspend-resume and migration. another challenge is to simultaneously take a snapshot of many images and transfer them to persistent storage to support management tasks. Once the VM instances 1are deployed. ensuring high portability for different configurations. . it is important to enable efficient concurrent deployment and snapshotting that are at the same time hypervisor independent and ensure a maximum compatibility with different configurations.2. This new model raises new challenges in the design and development of IaaS middleware.

2. They’re focused on coming up with solutions that serve customer requirements today and anticipate future needs. Our aim is to create and implement load balancing mechanisms. Aim and Objectives In this project. One resource can be available to the all the users . . We want to reduce the contention on current system & allow maximum number of user to access VM’s with quick resume. restart & suspend operation. A focus on the use of reusable frameworks to provide cost and times benefits. we are creating cloud infrastructure which allows users to lease computational resources from cloud anticipating their requirements we provide them without confliction. for managing numbers of users at the same time and within the context of time slices.

Such a large deployment of many VMs at once can take a long time. starting from a set of VM images previously stored in a persistent fashion. When taking frequent snapshots for a large number of VMs. not counting the time to boot the operating system itself.. which are difficult to manage and which interfere with the ease-of-use rationale behind clouds. Leasing of computation time is accomplished by allowing users to deploy virtual machines (VMs) on the datacentre’s resources[1]. With IaaS. Therefore.g. which limits the ability to easily migrate VMs among different hypervisors. with growing datacentre trends and tendencies to federate clouds. users can lease storage and computation time from large datacentre’s. by using external resources to complement their local resource base. such approaches generate a large number of files and interdependencies among them. for check pointing or off-line migration to another cluster or cloud). Conventional snapshotting techniques rely on custom VM image file formats to store only incremental differences in a new file that depends on the original VM image as the backing file. One of the commonly occurring patterns in the operation of IaaS is the need to deploy a large number of VMs on many nodes of a datacentre at the same time. The on-demand nature of IaaS is critical to making such leases attractive. Conventional deployment techniques broadcast the images to the nodes before starting the VM instances. Since the user has complete control over the configuration of the VMs using on-demand deployments. We refer to this pattern as multisnapshotting. Literature Survey In recent years. multisnapshotting must be handled in a transparent and portable . Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing has emerged as a viable alternative to the acquisition and management of physical resources.4. IaaS leasing is equivalent to purchasing dedicated hardware but without the long-term commitment and cost. This can make the response time of the IaaS installation much longer than acceptable and erase the ondemand benefits of cloud computing. configurations are becoming more and more heterogeneous. Furthermore. This problem is particularly acute for VM images used in scientific computing where image sizes are large (from a few gigabytes up to more than 10 GB). Custom image formats are not standardized and can be used with specific hypervisors only. this pattern occurs when the user wants to deploy a virtual cluster that executes a distributed application or a set of environments to support a workflow. a similar challenge applies to snapshotting the deployment: many VM images that were locally modified need to be concurrently transferred to stable storage with the purpose of capturing the VM state for later use (e.[1] Once the VM instances are running. since it enables users to expand or shrink their resources according to their computational needs. a process that can take tens of minutes to hours. For example. A typical deployment consists of hundreds or even thousands of such images. This emerging model leads to new challenges relating to the design and development of IaaS systems. We refer to this pattern as multideployment.

fine-grain data accesses [1]. 4. high-performance distributed data-storage service that facilitates data sharing at large scale. Since the patterns are complementary. 4. these patterns may also generate high network traffic that interferes with the execution of applications on leased resources and generates high utilization costs for the user.2 Disadvantages To give less performance and storage space. provisioning. and network traffic consumption. In addition to incurring significant delays and raising manageability issues. This paper proposes a distributed virtual file system specifically optimized for both the multideployment and multisnapshotting patterns. Clouds have been defined just as virtualized hardware and software plus the previous monitoring and provisioning technologies. We addressed several major requirements related to these challenges. while handling snapshotting transparently and exposing standalone. Disk storage (cheap hard-drives with . Moreover. One such requirement is the need to efficiently cope with massive unstructured data (organized as huge sequences of bytes . 4.BLOBs that can grow to TB) in very large-scale distributed systems while maintaining a very high data throughput for highly concurrent. The role of virtualization in Clouds is also emphasized by identifying it as a key component. It is not possible to build a scalable.3 Cloud infrastructure IaaS platforms are typically built on top of clusters made out of loosely-coupled commodity hardware that minimizes per unit cost and favours low power over maximum speed. while keeping maximum portability among different hypervisor configurations.1 Existing system The huge computational potential offered by large distributed systems is hindered by poor data sharing scalability. Cloud Computing is a “buzz word” around a wide variety of aspects such as deployment. and data and processing outsourcing. raw image files (understood by most hypervisors) to the outside[6]. we investigate them in conjunction. Our proposal offers a good balance between performance. storage space. load balancing. Network traffic consumption also very high due to non concentrating on application that hides the interdependencies of incremental differences and exposes standalone VM images.

Therefore. Thus. virtual topology. since the contents of RAM.4 Application state The state of the VM deployment is defined at each moment in time by two main components: the state of each of the VM instances and the state of the communication channels between them (opened sockets. With the recent explosion in cloud computing demands. for VM instances that need large amounts of memory. . the general case is usually simplified such that the application state is reduced to the sum of states of the VM instances . saving the application state implies saving both the state of all VM instances and the state of all active communication channels among them. such that they are able to host the VMs. CPU registers. In order to avoid this issue. While several methods have been established in the virtualization community to capture the state of a running VM (CPU registers.000 VMs consumes 2 TB of space. such as configuration files that describe the environment and temporary files that were generated by the application.).capacities in the order of several hundred GB) is attached to each machine. the issue of capturing the global state of the communication channels is difficult and still an open problem. Even so.compatible between different hypervisors. in terms of both hardware and software. while the machines are interconnected with standard Ethernet links. RAM. download. there is an acute need for scalable storage. and the like does not need to be saved. Any in-transit network traffic is discarded.[5] This information is then later used to reboot and reinitialize the software stack running inside the VM instance.). and so forth. delete. which is used to store only minimal information about the state. in-transit network packets. The repository is responsible for storing the VM images persistently in a reliable fashion and provides the means for users to manipulate them: upload. Such an approach has two important practical benefits: (i) Huge reductions in the size of the state. 4. Model 2 can further be simplified such that the VM state is represented only by the virtual disk attached to it (Model 3). The machines are configured with proper virtualization technology. In order to provide persistent communication channels and resend lost information[5]. and (ii) Portability since the VM can be restored on another host without having to worry about restoring the state of hardware devices that are not supported or are in. a dedicated repository is deployed either as centralized or as distributed storage service running on dedicated storage nodes. which is unacceptable for a single one.point-in-time deployment checkpoint. in the most general case . saving 2 GB of RAM for 1. state of devices. etc. the necessary storage space can explode to huge sizes. For example. under the assumption that a fault-tolerant networking protocol is used that is able to re. etc.

storage space. we describe an implementation on top of Blob Seer. we investigate them in conjunction. Since the patterns are complementary. Our proposal offers a good balance between performance. and network traffic consumption. raw image files (understood by most hypervisors) to the outside[4]. raw image files.1 ADVANTAGE A good balance between performance. while handling snapshotting transparently and exposing standalone. We introduce a series of design principles that optimize multi deployment and multi snapshotting patterns and describe how our design can be integrated with IaaS infrastructures. . 5. a versioning storage service specifically designed for high throughput under concurrency. storage space. To illustrate this point.5. Scope A distributed virtual file system specifically optimized for both the multi deployment and multi snapshotting patterns. and network traffic consumption. We show how to realize these design principles by building a virtual file system that leverages versioningbased distributed storage services. while handling snapshotting transparently and exposing standalone.


Furthermore. they can be either collectively or independently analyzed and modified in an attempt to . Once a clone is created for each VM instance. let’s assume a scenario where a complex. The first time the snap-shot is taken. Since all image snapshots are independent entities. The cloud middleware [2] in turn coordinates the compute nodes to achieve the afore-mentioned management tasks. telling it when to start and stop VMs. CLONE and COMMIT can also be exposed by the cloud middleware at the user level through the control API for fine-grained control over snapshotting. This approach enables snapshotting to be leveraged in interesting ways. The cloud middleware interacts directly with both the hypervisor. CLONE is broadcast to all mirroring modules. Running the application repeatedly and waiting for it to reach the point where the bug happens might be prohibitively expensive. which is responsible for ondemand mirroring and snapshotting and relies on both the local disk and the distributed versioning storage service to do so. fully independent VM image that is globally accessible through the storage service and can be deployed on other compute nodes or manipulated by the client.Plan of Action The simplified architecture of a cloud that integrates our approach is depicted in Figure 1. and when to persistently store its local modifications (COMMIT) [2]. However. The typical elements found in the cloud are illustrated with a light background. Each compute node runs a hypervisor [1] that is responsible for running the VMs. dynamically adding or removing compute nodes from that set. The cloud client has direct access to the storage service and is allowed to upload and download images from it. subsequent global snapshots are performed by is. and snapshotting individual VM instances or the whole set.7. when to create a new image clone (CLONE) [2]. is performed in the following fashion.suing each mirroring module a COMMIT to its corresponding clone. the cloud client interacts with the cloud middleware through a control API that enables a variety of management tasks. and the mirroring module. distributed application needs to be debugged. including deploying an image on a set of compute nodes. A global snapshot of the whole application. which involves taking a snapshot of all VM instances in parallel. A distributed versioning storage service that supports cloning and shadowing is deployed on the compute nodes and consolidates parts of their local disks into a common storage pool. while the elements that are part of our proposal are highlighted by a darker background. Every uploaded image is automatically striped. the application right before the bug happens. Both CLONE and COMMIT are control primitives that result in the generation of a new. The reads and writes of the hypervisor are trapped by the mirroring module [1]. followed by COMMIT. For ex-ample. telling it what image to mirror from the repository.

If the attempt was not successful. . which is usually performed at smaller scale. the application can safely resume from the point where it left. Once this fix is made. Such an approach is highly useful in practice at large scale because complex synchronization bugs [3] tend to appear only in large deployments and are usually not triggered during the test phase.fix the bug. the approach can continue iteratively until a fix is found.
