What is Autonomic Computing

Handbook of Research on Scalable Computing Technologies
Accounts for a system that does not need human intervention to work, repair, adapt and optimize. Autonomous entities must adapt to their usage context to find the best fit for their execution.

Pervasive Grids: Challenges and Opportunities

Pervasive Grid is motivated by the advances in Grid technologies and the proliferation of pervasive systems, and is leading to the emergence of a new generation of applications that use pervasive and ambient information as an integral part to manage, control, adapt and optimize. However, the inherent scale and complexity of Pervasive Grid systems fundamentally impact how applications are formulated, deployed and managed, and presents significant challenges that permeate all aspects of systems software stack. In this chapter, the authors present some use-cases of Pervasive Grids and highlight their opportunities and challenges. They then present why semantic knowledge and autonomic mechanisms are seen as foundations for conceptual and implementation solutions that can address these challenges.

Exploiting P2P Solutions in Telecommunication Service Delivery Platforms
This term was coined by IBM’s term to indicate a technology for introducing self-managing capabilities into Information Technology. Goal is to shift the burden of management tasks such as fault, configuration, maintenance, and performance management from people to technology itself (i.e., by enhancing the systems with self-* capabilities). In this context, self-organization is defined as a process where the organization of a system spontaneously increases, i.e., without this increase being controlled by the environment or an encompassing or otherwise external system.

Automatic Self Healing Using Immune Systems
Computer systems and networks that configure themselves to changing conditions and are self healing in the event of failure. “Autonomic” means “automatic responses” to unpredictable events. At the very least, “autonomic” implies that less human intervention is required for continued operation under such conditions.
