Description:
Modern large-scale distributed systems require sophisticated deployment and constant changes of deployment reacting to external workload, events and failures. This project is about developing a game-like control interface for system deployment. It works like the game Galcon (see references) on Tablets. A set of "planets" represent the data centers and the "swarms of battle ships" represent the computing resources you need to relocate from one data center to another due to resource exhaustion on the source data center or other reasons. There might be underlying re-deployment policies and auto-migration tools to help but it also allows the system operators to redeploy using the touch interface. This project will allow you to play with Tablet applications, game designs and expose to distributed systems concept.
