COLA develops a generic set of services, MiCADO, that provide dynamic and automated resource scalability on clouds for all (or at least a very wide range of) applications.
The SUNFISH project aims to reduce management cost of private clouds owned by Public Sector bodies.
Enabling the development and execution of time critical applications in Clouds.
The TOREADOR project is aimed at overcoming some major hurdles that until now have prevented many European companies from reaping the full benefits of Big Data Analytics (BDA).
SeaClouds is a novel open source framework that performs Seamless Adaptive Multi-cloud Management of Service-based applications.
This cloud´s standard-based framework consist on an Application Management System over Clouds (AMSoC) which makes more efficient the design, development, planning and management of complex business applications across multiple and heterogeneous clouds, something unfeasible hitherto.
SeaClouds is a valuable tool for:
MODAClouds will provide methods, a decision support system (DSS) and an open source IDE and run-time environment for the high-level design, early prototyping, semi-automatic code generation, and automatic deployment of applications on multi-Clouds with
guaranteed quality of services.
IOStack is a Software-defined Storage toolkit for Big Data on top of the OpenStack platform.
CloudSpaces aims to protect personal data of users and organisations stored and synchronized in Personal Clouds.
The Clarus project provides innovation in security-enabling techniques, attack-tolerant systems and in new architectures for secure delivery in the cloud.
ARTIST targets mainly software owners who need to modernize their applications and business model towards the cloud. ARTIST focuses on the modernization of applications based on three pillars that in most occasions cannot be tackled independently.
The “as-a-service” approach, which delegates all kinds of resources to remote cloud service providers (CSPs), calls for new security methodologies that introduce security mechanisms and controls in a modular way. This is the base notion behind SPECS security-as-a-service offering.
MIKELANGELO offers flexible, easy to maintain, open source, standardised and user friendly Cloud/HPC Cloud technology stack, focusing on performance, low footprint and security. MIKELANGELO components are easy to deploy and compatible with renowned upstream or enabling open source projects and standards such as KVM, POSIX, OpenStack and Kubernetes.
iKaaS is paving the way towards trouble-free multi-cloud based services. We envision that in this scenario, many parties can be a provider as well as a consumer of cloud-based assets, helping to extend cloud capabilities and leverage at the same time the wealth of knowledge and services empowered through this.
The business potential of HyVar lays in the market need to increase maintainability and agility of distributed software.
EUBrasilCloudFORUM, a Coordination and Support Action, aims at establishing an organisational cooperation model that enables the EU and Brazil to formulate and develop a common strategy and approach for Research & Innovation in Cloud Computing in line with the priorities of each region.
Why is this important?
Cloud computing’s initial success and impact in the IT sector is undeniable, but as its service offerings continue to evolve, both cloud infrastructure providers and application developers alike look towards a significant improvement in terms of performance, reliability and agility.
The ASCETiC project focuses on issues of energy efficient computing, specifically on design, construction, deployment and operation of Cloud services.
