The LRZ compute Cloud is set up as an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution based on Openstack. In Openstack it is possible to define multi-tier applications, i.e., a collection of virtual machines that is seen and managed as a single entity (or service). Within a service, a user can define a hierarchy (which VM should start first), elasticity rules (how to scale out the infrastructure) and send cumulative commands to the member VMs.
A new network scanning and penetration testing service is currently being developed at LRZ. This service needs to be elastic as the amount of hosts and services that needs to be scanned can be very large. Since this service is going to be implemented using the Django Framework, a concept and evaluation of running Django projects in Cloud environments is required first.
