Happy Clouds in Berlin

EASI-CLOUDS project won an award at ITEA-Artemis co-summit! For more information about the award see: https://itea3.org/co-summit-2015/itea-awards-of-excellence-1.html

The mission of the EASI-CLOUDS project was to develop advanced cloud technologies. The vision has been that customers can compare, select and buy computing as any other utility. EASI-CLOUDS developed technologies for that – especially brokering, federation and SLA negotiation.

The project also won an excellence award in Business Impact: https://itea3.org/co-summit-2015/itea-awards-of-excellence-1.html

The project had partners from six countries (Finland, France, Germany, Egypt, Korea and Egypt) and the Finnish consortium consisted of TUT, University of Helsinki, F-Secure, Leonidas Oyj, Innofactor, and GearShift.

TUT team work on two goals that both relate to application and service creation:

  1. Cloud-based software development. We utilized the our existing asset, CoRED/MIDEaaS and intagrated it with technologies developed by other partners. For instance in Figure 1, CoRED has been integrated with a billing service created by a German partner ORGA. Another example is continuous deployment pipe line that uses cloud technologies developed in France.
  2. Service composition system for end-users.

As a result of the project we have

  • New international contacts and experience.
  • Increased competence in Cloud Computing and an Open Stack based cloud installation that can be used in further R&D projects.
  • The continuous deployment pipeline is utilized in later projects, especially Need-for-Speed.
  • Several publications.
  • One master thesis and two doctoral thesis by project members were defended by the team during the project.

Alumni of the project in alphabetical order: Farshad Ahmadighohandizi, Otto Hylli, Samuel Lahtinen, Janne Lautamäki, Tommi Mikkonen, Anna Ruokonen, Tiia Suvanto, Kari Systä.
