[Openstack] Computer Science Master's Thesis Topics?

Hi Felix!
I'm a PhD student at CTU FEE. My own topic was simulation of automatic scaling using both the event-driven approach and queue network modelling. The second part of the thesis was on the prediction of web server workload in time. If you wanted, you could continue and simulate some predictive autoscaling algorithms. The framework is already there, and I have tons of literature on how to continue, but no time, as I'm working in the public cloud industry now.

It would also be interesting to extend the prediction, which relies on daily seasonality and do the other approach - short-term anomaly detection.

One could also apply performance engineering models to machine learning, to better estimate the length of big data processing jobs.

I also have some free practical systems engineering topics from clouds and big data, such as:
Compare Hadoop access methods - jump box vs. Apache Knox
Automatic server configuration integrated with network management
Compare an enterprise disk array with software defined storage
Install and benchmark alternate network layers in OpenStack

That's about all I have ready at the time.

Subject: [Openstack] Computer Science Master's Thesis Topics?

Hey Folks,

I'm Felix and I'm looking for a topic for my master's thesis in computer science. I studied at the Humboldt University of Berlin and currently I'm working as an OpenStack consultant. I was hoping some of you could point me to areas or even specific topics related to OpenStack which need further scientific research. My topic needs to be about a scientific research question and cannot be a programming task or something similar to that. Maybe some of you have a problem for me which needs solving or can point me directions where to look at or who to ask?

Thank you in advance and kind regards,

Felix Fischer
