That is, the software information is integrated into the meta information of the virtual server. By registering software that defines one or more functions running on a single virtual server and registering the necessary parameters in the registered software, an environment in which the server can run in a physical virtualization environment is configured. The software and environment variable values included in the virtual server meta information are copied by registering the original value, and when the value of the original software and the variable is changed, the meta information using the corresponding value is automatically or synchronously selected by the user . This synchronization function can facilitate the operation and management of the software.

Since meta information about a virtual server is not dependent on a specific hardware device and a virtualization environment, it can be copied and moved to any environment necessary for IT service operation. Based on the copied and transferred meta information, You can create and run a virtualization server.

Referring to FIG. 5, the virtual server agent control unit 200 of the system 1000 for automating an operational process based on cloud and virtualization utilizing meta information according to the present invention can execute the functions of different software successively And manages meta information for management of correlation between virtual servers to execute functions of software registered in different virtual servers.

In more detail, if a connection execution function capable of continuously connecting functions of different software is examined, the functions of the software registered in the virtual server can be executed by connecting the unit functions according to the purpose of user specification .

That is, the user can specify the execution order of the software functions registered in the virtual server meta information, thereby enabling the IT service function and the operation necessary for the operation to be performed.

The detailed functions are as follows.

1. Define and execute the sequence of the functions of the software registered in the virtual server.

2. Specifying the execution order of the functions of the software registered in the heterogeneous virtual server and executing it.

3. Execute a software function set in a plurality of virtual servers of the same or different kinds to be executed in a specific virtual server.

4. Suspend the execution of the connection according to the user setting.

5. Analyze the execution result of the software function executed in the virtual server and execute the software function registered in the other virtual server according to the execution result value.

In order to execute the operation management function, which is a bundle of connected functions, an integrated execution management number (Transaction ID) is issued and assigned in units of bundle so that the bundle unit can be divided and classified. The issued issuance number is assigned to the bundle execution Ensure uniqueness. When the software functions included in the operations management function are executed in the virtual server, they have the uniqueness of the executed and executed results according to the following principles.

That is, referring to the equation of FIG. 5, it is as follows.

Uniqueness of Identity = Operation ID + Transaction ID + Software ID + Event ID + Instance ID

Here, the Operation ID is an ID assigned to the operation management function unit and has a unique value in the operation management function.

The Transaction ID is issued for each operation management function every time the operation management function is executed, and has a unique value that is not duplicated each time it is executed.

The software ID has a unique value for each software in the software meta information management system.

Event ID is the only value issued by function in the same software.

Instance ID has a unique value for each virtual server physically created in the virtual server meta information management system.

Next, referring to FIG. 6, a meta information management system for managing correlation between virtual servers for executing functions of software registered in different virtual servers will be described.

The process automation function according to the present invention is a process automation function in which a virtual server that executes an automation function to manage processing between successive functions in an environment where different software operates in different servers as well as servers operating in the same server is called an originator, And define individual servers to which each software function is performed as a listener.

A listener is a virtual server in which individual software functions are executed, and is transmitted through the virtual server agent control unit 300 when the function necessary for execution of the context information is executed.

In addition, the Originator is the information of the virtual server that originally executed the automation function (a set of sequential software functions). If the server on which the software function is executed is different from the virtual server that requested the automation function, And the virtual server on which the software function is executed is the same as the virtual server on which the automation function is requested, the information of the executor and the requester are the same.

Lastly, the agent execution unit 300 of the automated process system 1000 for operating processes based on cloud and virtualization utilizing meta information according to the present invention executes virtualization server meta information and software meta information.

The meta information management unit 100 of the cloud and virtualization-based process automation processing system 1000 according to the present invention further includes a meta information storage unit 110, a user interface 120, and an interface 130 .

Here, the meta information storage unit 110 serves as a repository for storing meta information, the user interface 120 allows the user to manage information stored in the meta information storage unit, and the interface 130 And processes the information transmitted through the agent executing unit 300. [

Next, the detailed configuration of the meta information management unit 100, the virtual server agent control unit 200, and the agent execution unit 300 will be described, respectively.

The meta information management unit 100 of the cloud and virtualization-based process automation processing system according to the present invention includes a standard interface system for standardized virtual environment control based on a meta information system, It manages the meta information system more.

First, a standard interface system for standardized virtual environment control based on the meta information system will be described. The virtualization elements managed through the present invention are standardized so that they can be controlled regardless of the service characteristics of specific hardware devices, virtualization software, Define and provide an interface. The management system performs the standardization of the meta information system for the following items.

1. Meta Information Standardization for Virtual Computing Equipment Information

2. Standardization of meta information about disk information used in virtual computing equipment

3. Meta Information Standardization for Network Information Used in Virtual Computing Equipment

4. Standardization of firewall management system to access from virtual computing equipment

5. Standardization of load balancing functions for software running on multiple virtual computing devices

A standard interface management system is defined according to the meta information system, and a module linking with a device and a provider providing a real virtual environment is created in accordance with each characteristic and dynamically used in a program as needed.

Next, the meta information system for defining and controlling the software functions consists of a binary file information for executing the software, a function provided by the software, or a set of functions necessary for operating the software. In the present invention, the function of such software is called an event.

The binary information for executing the software includes version information, and the binary is managed depending on the software according to the version information. Information about the binary repository for software and version information is delivered as a dynamic variable to the agent where the execution is performed when the event, the function of the software, is executed.

Each software can manage specific configuration values to run the corresponding software, dynamically define these managed values, and define defined values to be referenced in the script as dynamic variables when the software function is executed have.

In addition, the meta information management unit 100 of the cloud and virtualization-based process automation processing system according to the present invention generates and manages user-defined operation management functions through virtual server and software meta information.

There are various functions and operating methods for the IT services provided by users. In the present invention, such an operation is defined through a connection execution function. It provides the function to operate the defined operation according to the situation in the actual virtual server.

The functions thus defined are not only selectable and executable by the user, but also provide a function that can be executed by assigning a management number (ID) capable of specifying an operation function. In addition, the function is provided so that the user can directly call and utilize it within the function of the software registered by the user.

Each operation management function has an individual execution history, and it can inquire the executed execution result and includes a function to grasp the status of each software function in real time in real time.

Basically, the management functions provided by the meta information of the virtual server are as follows.

1. Create Virtual Server (Created)

2. Virtual server restart (Rebooted)

3. Virtual Server Termination (Terminated)

4. Stop the virtual server (Suspended)

5. Virtual Server Software Update (Binary Updated)

6. Change Virtual Server software settings (Configuration Updated)

In addition, the meta information management unit 100 of the cloud and virtualization-based process automation processing system according to the present invention manages and changes the connection execution state.

The information about the connection execution status is managed by the state information according to the execution of the operation management function, which is a bundle of continuous software functions, and the state information according to the execution result of the individual software function. Management. Depending on the execution status of the operation management function, the function that has been terminated can be executed only from the beginning. If the status is "Stop", "Abort" or "Failure", the user confirms the relevant items through the log You can restart from an interrupted software function.

In the present invention, in order to efficiently provide such a function, the functions of software registered in the virtual server are defined in the form of icons, and the execution order is specified by a user selecting a drag and drop method. Similarly, the change of execution order once set can be changed by using the drag and drop method in accordance with the order required by the user so that the execution order of the software function can be grasped conveniently and intuitively.

Finally, the meta information management unit 100 of the cloud and virtualization-based process automation processing system according to the present invention includes an open market function for trading software meta information, virtual server meta information capable of providing a specific IT service, It also includes an open market function that can combine and trade software meta information.

First of all, if you look at the open market function that deals with software meta information, you can sell software meta information of users or developers to other users, and software functions can perform many functions depending on the characteristics of users who use the same software. This is a way to provide software meta-information that includes such user-friendliness as transactions.

Meanwhile, an open market function that can combine virtual server meta information and software meta information that can provide a specific IT service can be considered. In the open market function, a plurality of virtual server meta information and software information included therein are integrated to provide an IT service In addition, there is a way to sell the integrated meta information that can be configured to enable users to purchase IT services that users want to provide IT services in a future IT environment.

Meanwhile, the virtual server agent control unit 200 of the process automation processing system based on the cloud and virtualization according to the present invention manages the execution state of the connected software function and transmits it to the outside.

In other words, if we look at the connection execution function that can execute the functions of different software successively by connecting the functions of different software, it defines the state that is finally terminated in the state where the function of executing the first execution of the connected software is started, With the ability to notify by email and short and long text. A software execution function that runs continuously is defined as "pause" or "failure" depending on user setting and function processing error. If such a condition occurs, it stops execution even if there is the next software function to execute continuously, And waits until it is done.

The processing state of the software function is defined as the following three states.

1. Success: Defined as a state in which the software functions normally and can execute the following software functions without additional confirmation.

2. Conditional success: The software function has operated normally, but it must be processed when interpreting the processing result and performing the following software functions.

3. Failure: Failed to perform software function and must check the processing history.

In addition, the state of the entire software function is defined as follows by reflecting the execution state of the unit software function.

1. Start: The first software function of the connected software function is executed

2. Perform: The connected software functions are running in a state of success or conditional success.

3. Stop: The state of the connected software function that requires user's intervention

4. Interrupt: Interpreting the processing results of the associated software to determine whether a particular state of conditional success is connected

5. Error: In case of an internal error of management function in executing connected software function

6. Failure: If the processing result of the connected software function is in the state of failure

7. Shutdown: All the functions of the connected software have been completed and completed with the condition of success or conditional success.

Next, FIG. 7 is a diagram showing an analysis according to a result of performing the continuous software function and a procedure for executing the next function.

Referring to FIG. 7, the virtual server agent control unit 200 of the process automation processing system based on the cloud and virtualization according to the present invention analyzes the processing result of the connected software function to determine whether to execute the next software function .

More specifically, when the operation management function, which is a function of continuous software, is executed, the result of the execution of the software function is transmitted to the control unit, and the control unit searches the list of the software function to be executed next. do.

If the searched function list exists, the execution condition in which each function list is executed is matched with the previous processing result value. If there is a result value matching the execution condition, the corresponding software function is performed. If there is no matching result value, the process is terminated.

If there are two or more software function lists matching the result value, change the status of the operation management function to "error", and transmit the related information to the user and confirm whether or not to continue the execution.

In addition, the virtual server agent control unit 200 of the cloud and virtualization-based process automation processing system according to the present invention collectively inquires and displays execution results of the connected software functions.

That is, according to the status information of the operation management function, which is a bundle of the connected software functions, it is displayed using the color and image information characterizing the status. Since each operation management function is executed for each Instance ID, information is provided to the user through the following management system.

Referring to FIG. 8, the agent execution unit 300 of the cloud and virtualization-based process automation processing system according to the present invention manages in-memory for managed meta information and environment variable information.

More specifically, in order to execute the software management function, meta information and environment variable information necessary for the agent are managed. The management target information is managed in a memory area managed by the agent, and when the managed information is changed, it is changed in real time. The management target information is subjected to search and change management by applying a key / value type hash algorithm.

The change of the management object information is transmitted to the agent in real time through the HTTP communication through the control. The information loaded in the HTTP payload is transmitted using the JSON structure and the information corresponding to the key is utilized by using the key value included in the JSON structure Change it.

Information on the environment variables changed inside the agent is synchronized through communication between the agent and the agent in the same type of virtual server according to the meta information management system. In case of performing such communication, the master The master agent transmits information to the agent and transfers the changed information to the virtual server of the same group to perform synchronization.

FIG. 9 is a diagram showing a software function forward execution scheme to be executed in conjunction with each other. FIG. 10 is a diagram illustrating a method for executing an agent-to-agent script from a plurality of virtual servers to a specific virtual server.

Referring to FIG. 9, the agent executing unit 300 according to the present invention controls software functions between one agent installed in a virtual server and another agent.

The execution of the software function is transferred to the agent through the control part. When the delivered software functions are distributed to a plurality of virtualization servers, the continuous software functions are executed first in the selected virtualization server (virtual server A in FIG. 8) and the connected software functions are executed in the same server. If the necessary software functions are installed on a separate server (s) and these functions are activated (③ in Fig. 8), the virtual server group (virtual server B, C , D) at the same time, and when the response is completed, the next software function to be connected is executed to sequentially complete the operation function.

Execute a script for software functions on a number of virtual servers to determine the criteria for completion based on the following formula.

Script completion criterion of the same type virtual server = (number of processing completion response servers / number of total script transmission servers) × 100> setting threshold value

Referring to FIG. 10, as a component of the present invention, a virtualization server of a specific type provides a function for controlling a connection relationship with a software function installed in a designated virtual server. Among the connected software functions, function ③ in Fig. 9 shows that the virtual server (virtual server b, c, d in Fig. 9) of the specific type in the server (virtual server a) Execute the script to be executed on the operation management server.

This type of functionality is commonly found in many virtual servers and IT services running in conjunction with a specific server. Typically this can be seen through the relationship between the database system and the web application that uses it. Recently, This structure is common in the Hadoop operating system used in the system, and the environment can be easily managed through the function of the present invention.

Through the present invention, users who use a virtualized environment including a cloud can selectively use a service provider who is not dependent on a virtualization service provider or a specific hardware provider and has excellent price and performance, The transition from the supplier's preference to the consumer-first environment allows the recipient to have an economical effect.

In addition, the management functions for software running in a virtualized environment can be easily configured. By automating the processes required to actively expand and contract the service according to the demand of the IT service provided by the user, It can shorten the time it takes to process the process and reduce the engineer costs that were put into the process.

By organizing the functions of various software operating in various virtualization environments into meta information and selling them to users who need it, it is possible to activate the software ecosystem and to provide users who want to provide IT service based on the virtualization environment And to enable virtualization-based IT services.
