|Modern CPS and mobile applications like augmented reality or coordinated driving, etc. are envisioned to combine edge-cloud processing with real-time requirements. The real-time requirements however create a brand new challenge for cloud processing which has traditionally been best-effort. A key to guaranteeing real-time requirements is the understanding of how services sharing resources in the cloud interact on the performance level.
The objective of the thesis is to design a mechanism which helps to categorize cloud applications based on the type of their workload. This should result in specification of a model defining a set of applications which can be deployed on a single node, while guaranteeing a certain quality of the service. It should be also able to find the optimal node where the application could be deployed.
