Work in Progress: Availability-Aware Self-Configuration in Autonomic Systems
The Unity project is a prototype autonomic system demonstrating and validating a number of ideas about self-managing computing systems. We are currently working to enhance the self-configuring and self-optimizing aspects of the system by incorporating the notion of component availability into the system’s policies, and into its models of itself.
