Research Project CloudPerfect (Enabling CLoud Orchestration, Performance and Cost Efficiency Tools for QoE Enhancement and Provider Ranking) (12/2016-11/2018)
Objective: to enhance the competitiveness of Cloud services
COSMOTE is participating in the CloudPerfect European research project (www.cloudperfect.eu) which aims to optimize the quality of the Cloud services offered while reducing cost, by delivering a set of tools and processes to orchestrate Cloud processes as well as to evaluate and monitor performance of the Cloud infrastructure.
The CloudPerfect tools will: a) enable Cloud providers to enhance the stability and performance of their infrastructure, b) help Cloud adopters to understand the computational nature of their applications, minimize the time for procurement and provider selection processes, automate deployment and orchestration processes, balance their selection between cost and performance, define and monitor SLA (Service Level Agreement) levels and c) enable 3rdparties to act as independent validators of Cloud QoS features, through constant monitoring, benchmarking and evaluation processes, filling the gap between the current brokerage/consultancy domain for performance evaluation and SLA auditing.
As part of the project, COSMOTE is helping identify requirements and define the specifications and the overall system architecture. COSMOTE will also contribute to the development and integration of the Cloud testbed platform and applications as well as the validation of the overall system. Finally, the company is helping with project dissemination and exploitation activities.
CloudPerfect receives co-funding from the EU through the Horizon 2020 Framework Program. It will run for two years (12/2016-11/2018) and it is being implemented by 8 partners from 5 European countries (Greece, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany and France).
