In the talk different applications of feedback control to clouds and datacenters will be presented. The overall objective is to make the cloud, its datacenters, and the communication network for autonomous or "self-driving". Applications that will be discussed are admission control, service level control, network function virtualization, and MPC control over the edge cloud. The work has been funded by the VR Cloud Control Program and by WASP (Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program), Sweden's largest engineering research program.
