Effectively managing decentralized applications in cloud

environments using a decentralized control paradigm is essential, as current

cloud providers usually only offer a control interface for monitoring

cloud infrastructures. This study proposes a decentralized service control

framework for implementing the control across various organizations and

coordinating collaboration among operators in a decentralized application.

The proposed framework allows a consortium of organizations to

control a shared distributed cloud infrastructure decentralized reliably.

A consensus mechanism within the framework enables mutual coordination

between the operators. This mechanism also uses an incentive protocol

to enforce pro-active behavior and collaboration. We implement the

framework with Hyperledger Fabric, and our experiments demonstrate

its usability, reliability, and acceptable performance.
