This paper describes a proposal for developing an architecture for Educational Cloud based
on OpenStack framework, Service Composition techniques and Semantic Web to create virtualized
environments with specific features for teaching and researching environments, through the study of
recent patents correlated to this system. The creation and management of the architecture and its virtualized
environment are conducted through a system of service composition. Services are made available as a catalogue
and their access is limited by the user’s profile type (student, teacher, or researcher). The results shown in this article are
limited to the presentation and description of the system logic architecture and modeling.
Keywords: OpenStack, service composition, cloud computing, semantic web, SaaS, PaaS.
