Intra-Layer Cloud Stack Adaptation

This document presents the contribution of ASCETiC's component to science: individually per component, comparing them to current solutions and describing how each component goes a step beyond the state of the art.

The key action of the project for this period is to perform self-adaptation on a per layer basis, while the key research challenge solved is the ability to take adaptive actions based upon factors such as price, energy consumption and performance within each layer and to examine the effect that it has upon the running applications.

Finally, in addition to the detailed scientific contributions, this document contains user guides for each layer of the ASCETiC Toolbox.
