Verification & Validation Approach (Year 2)

During the first year a Validation & Verification approach, focused on energy awareness was developed. For the second year this process is broaden, as it not only keeps addressing energy awareness but verifying that self-adaptation at each layer of the Cloud stack in isolation is implemented as specified. The verification process addressess key aspects of the ASCETiC Toolbox (including testbeds, IaaS components, PaaS components, SaaS components and the integration of the different architecture layers), while the validation process relies again on scenarios from the Industry Pilot cases. As it was done in Year 1, the different ASCETiC artefacts are also inspected through manual and automated analysis.
