2. Contrail: Open Computing Infrastructures for Elastic Services
Schedule: 02:00 - 02:30
Speakers: Roberto Cascella, Technical Manager, Contrail FP7 Project, INRIA
Abstract: In the future of corporate IT, companies will rely on highly dynamic distributed IT infrastructures. Federation models are envisioned where a given organization will be both a Cloud provider during periods when its IT infrastructure is not used at its maximal capacity and a Cloud customer in periods of peak activity.
In the framework of the Contrail project funded by the European Commission ( ‐project.eu), a consortium of eleven academic and industrial partners develops an integrated approach to virtualization, offering Infrastructure as a Service services (IaaS), services for federating IaaS clouds and Platform as a Service services (PaaS) on top of federated clouds. Contrail project aims at developing a comprehensive cloud computing software stack in open source.
In this talk, we present an overview of Contrail project. We emphasize the research challenges we tackle, which are related to security, quality of service (QoS) and protection (QoP) in cloud federations, Service Level Agreement (SLA) management, efficient virtual platform management, and cloud storage.
3. CHOReOS: Large Scale Choreographies for the Future Internet’, foundations and prospects
Schedule: 02:30 - 03:00
Speakers: Pierre Chatel, Thales
Abstract: The CHOReOS ‘Large Scale Choreographies for the Future Internet’ European FP7 –Objective 1.2 project started in October 2010 and is directly linked to OW2 Future Internet initiative. Indeed, CHOReOS-developed concepts and technologies are specifically targeted to solve enactment of service choreographies in an Ultra Large Scale context: this covers being able to ‘execute’ choreography specifications over a network of discovered, dynamic, Business and Thing-based services.
Over its past first year, the project has consolidated its technical foundations (CHOReOS dynamic development model definition, CHOReOS middleware specification, Specification of the CHOReOS IDRE) and delivered the specification of its three use cases ("Passenger-friendly airport", "Mobile-enabled coordination of people", "DynaRoute"). This presentation will cover both these recent achievements, but will, first of all, give to the audience all the necessary keys to understand the context and the main goals underpinning CHOReOS.
