Welcome To The 1st International Workshop on Cloud Resource Orchestration in the Multi-cloud Landscape (CROW 2020)

It's Nice To Meet You

Due to Covid-19, the conference has been postponed to 2021. It will be held in Rome, Italy.

We are organising a Special Issue on respected Journal, stay tuned...


The multi-cloud paradigm is designed to provide cloud users with a wider range of cloud-based services to select from, according to the dynamics of the business needs. The advantages range from increase of flexibility to reduction of reliance on a single cloud vendor, which in turn brings concrete benefits such as cost effectiveness, service continuity, disaster mitigation, etc. The other side of the multi-cloud coin are the need of thoughtful plans for data governance and compliance following the recent GDPR directive, higher costs due to the management of the cloud sprawl, increase of application delivery’s complexity, deployment and management and more. In such a complex setting, a smart selection and orchestration of the cloud resources and services available in the market need to be enforced in order to maximize the customer’s utility. Cloud resource orchestration involves complex operations such as the selection, deployment, monitoring, and run-time control of resources. The overall goal of orchestration is to guarantee full and seamless delivery of applications by meeting Quality of service (QoS) goals of both cloud application owners and cloud resource providers. Resource orchestration in the multi-cloud landscape is considered a challenging activity because of both the scale dimension that resources have reached and the proliferation of heterogeneous cloud providers offering resources at different levels of the cloud stack.
