The talk will focus on building a multi-tenanted, elastically scalable, fault-tolerant Platform as a Service using various Apache Projects. Using Apache Airavata as a case study, the talk will discuss hands-on experiences of building a component based software system for managing the remote execution of scientific and other applications on computing clouds, supercomputers, clusters, and computational grids. The talk will introduce several architectural challenges as well as opportunities to leverage and collaborate with other Apache projects. We summarize best practices that we have learned for managing multiple components with complicated state in elastic virtual machine and container environments.
