We investigate the automatic deployment and scaling of grid infrastructure components as virtual machines in OpenStack. To optimize the CVMFS usage per hypervisor, we study different approaches to share CVMFS caches and cache VMs between multiple client VMs.\newline
For monitoring, we study container solutions and extend these to monitor non-containerized applications within cgroups resource controls. This allows to harness standard container monitoring toolkits for non-containerized applications without the immediate need to migrate to a fully containerized deployment.
