Thesis type EXPERIMENTAL AND MODELING

Description Cloud computing happens in a competitive environment: Multiple vendors offer cloud resources under incompatible APIs. On the other hand, spreading an application (e.g., a microservice-based chain of components) over multiple clouds from different vendors can have commercial and technical advantages. Terraform [1] is a popular tool to bridge API gaps between vendors and hide them under a uniform interface.

The goal of this thesis is to extend this idea to also incorporate IoT devices and very slim-lined "far cloud" scenarios into Terraform: Extend Terraform in such a fashion that components can be deployed in such contexts as well. This entails obtaining an understanding of options to run software on such devices, of Terraform. A subgoal is to design a proper extension, and the proof of concept lies in demonstrating the ability to run a cloud application via Terraform on either a conventional or an IoT/far cloud.
