OpenCloudware 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 "CloudForce". It has been co-labelled by the Systematic, Minalogic and SCS poles.
The OpenCloudware project aims at building an open software engineering platform, for the collaborative development of distributed applications to be deployed on multiple Cloud infrastructures. It will be available through a self-service portal. OpenCloudware targets virtualized multi-tier applications such as JavaEE - OSGi. The results of OpenCloudware will contain a set of software components to manage the lifecycle of such applications, from modelling (Think), developing and building images (Build), to a multi-IaaS compliant PaaS platform (Run) for their deployment, orchestration, performance testing, self-management (elasticity, green IT optimisation) and provisioning. Applications will be deployed potentially on multi IaaS (supporting either one IaaS at a time, or hybrid scenarios). The results of the project will be made available as open source components through the OW2 Open Source Cloudware initiative.
The main technological issues addressed by the project are:
The OpenCloudware project started in January 2012. Most components on which OpenCloudware developments are based can be found on OW2. They include Sirocco, ProActive, Entropy, CLIF, JOnAS, JASMINe, JORAM and Petals ESB. More information about the project outcomes will be published gradually on the project public website (coming soon).
