A Secure Cloud Manager for the X1.V1 Platform

The increasing number and complexity of e-health services provided to citizens push healthcare organizations to adopt powerful computing systems to deal with the resulting workload.The adoption of the Cloud to host such services is a promising solution to address the increasing demand for computational power and also to deal with expected or unexpected computational peaks.This paper proposes a framework that allows the execution on the Cloud of the X1.V1 platform, which is a commercial product that supports a number of e-health services as well as the interoperability among different healthcare environments.This framework is meant to enable an easy and quick management of the Cloud resources allocated to the X1.V1 platform, in order to enhance the platform performances and optimize resources utilization.The design of the framework takes into account security aspects as well, because unauthorized accesses could lead to serious inefficiencies of the e-health services.
