I am Devdatta Kulkarni. I build tools and frameworks that make life easier for software developers (devs). Specific areas that I focus on are – web applications, cloud platforms, containers, access control models, provenance models, NoSQL systems.

Checkout the blog for articles relevant for software developers and software development in today’s world of clouds.


CloudARK – Cloud Extension to Docker. Non-hosted alternative to Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions.


Key Research Papers:

In this work we investigated how to build a continuous integration / continuous delivery solution for Docker-based containerized applications using OpenStack Solum and Jenkins.

In this research I investigated issues related to provenance, auditability, tracking in Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model of cloud computing

In this research I investigated provenance issues in NoSQL systems such as Cassandra and MongoDB.

In this work I investigated how to build fine-grained access control models for non-relational key-value stores (NoSQL systems) such as Cassandra, HBase, MongoDB.

In this work we presented a role-based access control model for context-aware applications.
