Design­ing a reli­able sys­tem for Cloud Main­ten­ance and ensur­ing resi­li­ence (anom­aly detec­tion, root cause ana­lysis and recov­ery) is chal­len­ging due to the com­plex nature of the sys­tem. Resi­li­ence is defined as the abil­ity of a cloud plat­form to recover quickly and con­tinue oper­at­ing even when there has been a fail­ure, also referred to as fault tol­er­ance. Efforts are made to imple­ment pre­dict­ive approaches that can remedi­ate sys­tem parts exhib­it­ing anom­alies, which not yet evolved to sys­tem fail­ures. Recently, AIOps evolved as a cat­egory aim­ing at the com­bin­a­tion of sys­tem oper­a­tion with arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI) meth­ods. Thereby IT oper­a­tions are auto­mated and enhanced by using machine learn­ing and AI to ana­lyze data streams col­lec­ted from vari­ous IT mon­it­or­ing tools and devices. This allows to react to issues in real time.

Work­ing field:

The aim of the pro­ject is to do research and develop AIOps meth­ods for con­tinu­ous data streams. One chal­lenge is to cre­ate solu­tions, that are gen­eral enough to oper­ate across dif­fer­ent sys­tems. We focus on the fol­low­ing top­ics: log and met­ric data embed­ding, learn­ing joint rep­res­ent­a­tions for mul­tiple sys­tems, anom­aly detec­tion, and explain­ing anom­alies. All these will entail design­ing a gen­eral method, imple­ment­ing a pro­to­type in the con­text of exist­ing open source pro­jects, and exper­i­ment­ally eval­u­at­ing the pro­to­type with a test data using sim­u­lated and pro­duc­tion data.
