Private Cloud Infrastructure for Applications of Mechanical and Medical Engineering
The paper presents the development of the private cloud infrastructure providing advanced services for research in mechanical and medical engineering. The cloud services have been developed by using Apache jclouds API and JetS3t Toolkit to enhance management of Eucalyptus cloud infrastructure and to increase accessibility of engineering software. The performance of the developed cloud infrastructure has been assessed testing CPU, memory IO, disk IO, network and the deployed software services. The obtained results have been compared with the performance of the native hardware. The technical implementation of deployed cloud services has been evaluated by the utilising a number of use cases from different research areas of mechanical and medical engineering.
