    Provenance awareness adds a new dimension to the engineering of service-oriented systems, requiring them to be able to answer questions about the provenance of any data produced. This need is even more evident where atomic services are aggregated into added-value composite services to be delivered with certain non-functional characteristics. Prior work in the area of provenance for service-oriente... View full abstract»

    Describing the semantics of services accurately plays a crucial role in service discovery, execution, composition and interaction. Formal specification techniques, having evolved over the past 30 years, can define the semantics of software systems in a verifiable and testable manner. This paper presents a new algebraic specification language called SOFIA for describing the semantics of services. I... View full abstract»

    As a key technique in cloud computing, live virtual machine (VM) migration makes cloud computing elastic and renders more efficient resource scheduling. In many cases, live storage migration is also desirable. Compared to live VM migration, however, live storage migration is relatively slow. The speed gap between live VM migration and live storage migration may lead to poor Quality of Service (QoS... View full abstract»

    Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a business driven architecture that supports business strategies and goals. In enterprise systems, it offers flexibility for building IT solutions that can respond rapidly to changing business requirements and technology. The success of a service-oriented application implementation is measured by the level of flexibility, extendibility and customization in th... View full abstract»

    The modeling techniques for business process are mostly graphics-based, that is argued to be simplified when the processes become too complex or expanded to provide full details. In this paper we propose a technique for modeling composite activities by including components of data, human actors and atomic activities. Furthermore, we represent business processes with composite activities using proc... View full abstract»

    Multi-tenancy architecture (MTA) is often used in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and the central idea is that multiple tenant applications can be developed using components stored in the SaaS infrastructure. Recently, MTA has been extended where a tenant application can have its own sub-tenants as the tenant application acts like a SaaS infrastructure. In other words, MTA is extended to STA (Sub-Ten...

    Cloud computing aims at providing services on the basis of a shared pool of underpinning resources and load balancing is of paramount importance in such an environment. At the same time, multi-tenancy is widely adopted in cloud computing to reduce the costs of service provisioning and to improve resource utilization. Multi-tenancy brings new challenges to load balancing, since it incurs resource c... View full abstract»
