Verification and Validation Approach (Year 3)

This document presents the validation and verification approach for Y3 of the ASCETiC project. During this year, the focus of the validation and verification process is broadening to address inter-layer self-adaptation, not only energy awareness and intra-layer self-adaptation as in previous years. In other words, the validation and verification process verify and validate that the 2 layers (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS) from the ASCETiC architecture can cooperate when adapting applications and services to optimise their operation on the targeted trade-off between cost, time performance and energy consumption.
