ENOS: a Framework for Experimenting with OpenStack

ENOS is an integrated framework that facilitates experimenting with OpenStack. ENOS allows researchers to easily express different configurations, enabling fine-grained investigations of OpenStack services. ENOS collects performance metrics at runtime and stores them for post-mortem analysis and sharing.
