Description {{html clean="false" wiki="false"}}

Btrplace (http://btrp.inria.fr) is the flexible VM placement algorithm inside Entropy. It allows to compute the VMs placement, the servers' state, the resource allocation with regards to high-level constraints expressed by users. The btrplace sandbox (http://btrp.inria.fr:8080/sandbox/) is used for visualization and demonstration purpose of the btrplace inferring capabilities.

The current version of the sandbox relies on an outdated version of btrPlace that prevent it to use the whole set of supported constraints. It also has limited edition and integration capacities. We want to get rid of these limitations therefore, the objective of this project is to update the sandbox code, and BtrPlace if necessary. In addition, we think the GUI should be improved to provide a better visualization of a reconfiguration process.

Required technical skills: Java, Javascript, HTML/CSS
