CloudPerfect CLOUDPERFECT aims at delivering a set of tools and processes that will enable a) Cloud providers to enhance the stability and performance effectiveness of their infrastructures, through modelling and understanding of the overheads and optimal groupings of concurrently running services, runtime analysis and adaptation, thus gaining a competitive advantage b) Cloud adopters to understand the computational nature of their applications, investigate abstracted and understandable QoS metrics and how respective providers rank in them, how to balance their selection between cost and performance to optimize their competitiveness and monitor the maintenance of their SLA c) 3rd parties to act as independent validators of Cloud QoS features, enabling new business models through a constant monitoring, benchmarking and evaluation process, filling a large gap in the current brokerage/consultancy domain especially in the fields of performance evaluation and SLA auditing. http://cloudperfect.eu CloudPerfect Logo
Melodic The MELODIC platform will enable data-intensive applications to run within defined security, cost, and performance boundaries seamlessly on geographically distributed and federated cloud infrastructures. MELODIC will thereby realise the potential of heterogeneous cloud environments for big data and data-intensive applications by transparently taking advantage of distinct characteristics of available private and public clouds, dynamically optimise resource utilisation, consider data locality, conform to the user’s privacy needs and service requirements, and counter vendor lock-in. Hence, the main objective of the MELODIC project is to enable data-aware application deployments on geographically distributed and federated cloud infrastructures. http://melodic.eu Melodic Logo
CloudSocket Business and IT-Cloud Alignment using a Smart Socket. This project investigates the concept of Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) by creating environments for the different stages, i.e. from the modelling of business processes up to their execution as a service in the Cloud. https://www.cloudsocket.eu/ CloudSocket Logo
Cactos Context-Aware Cloud Topology Optimization and Simulation – is a project that investigates models and methods to increase the efficiency of cloud applications on a heterogeneous hardware infrastructure, in particular considering costs and energy efficiency. The project coordinator is Ulm University. http://www.cactosfp7.eu/ Cactos Logo
PaaSage Model-based Cross-Cloud Development and Deployment Platform. The project provides an open source integrated platform to support design, model-based development, configuration, optimization and deployment of existing and new Cloud applications independently of the existing underlying Cloud infrastructures. http://www.paasage.eu/ PaaSage Logo
