    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The permissioned blockchains have demonstrated&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;their potential to provide trustworthy and security services in various&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;industrial scenarios, especially in the Cloud-based virtualized&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;environments. To customize the configuration of a blockchain&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;application, an operator needs the performance characteristics&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;of a blockchain network in different Cloud environments. However,&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;manually profiling the performance characteristics of a&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;blockchain network is very time-consuming. Therefore, in this&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;paper, we propose a BlockchaIn-infRAstructure CustomIzation&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;and Auto-profiLing (BIRACIAL) framework to automate the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;whole process of blockchain deployment and performance profiling.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Based on the profile and performance requirements of a&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;blockchain application, the framework aims to plan the virtual&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;infrastructure for permissioned blockchain, to automate the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;provision of the required infrastructure, to deploy the customized&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;permissioned blockchain, and to enable continuous monitoring&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;of blockchain performance. Our evaluation results show that&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;the proposed framework can achieve automated deployment&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;of different permissioned blockchain networks under certain&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;overheads. The performance profiling results can be used to&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;compare and select the appropriate blockchain platforms and&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;consensus algorithms.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
