RISCOSS is a project funded by the French FSN (Fonds national pour la Solidarité Numérique) programme, call Cloud n° 1, and was initially submitted under the name "Magellan".
The objective of RISCOSS is to define and demonstrate an HPC-as-a-Service cloud platform for applications of intensive computation, with interactive remote visualisation capabilities, allowing different users to work on a common platform.
Expected results of the projects include:
functional and technical specification of the XLcloud platform architecture
open source API of the XLcloud platform and of the virtual cluster
implementation of algorithms for 3D and video streaming display
prototype of the XLcloud platform including the virtual cluster and the main components of the platform
use cases for validation, illustrating the performance and suggesting future improvements
XLcloud aims at overcoming some of the most important challenges of implementing operationally high performance applications in the Cloud. The goal is to allow actors of the project to take leadership position in the market, as cloud service providers, or as technology providers.
RISCOSS combines expertise from laboratories and companies with strong background in risk and costs management.
