In a recent Study in 2015 the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission evaluated 517 innovations in information and communication technology (ICT) from 279 FP7 and H2020 EU projects and rated the cloudSME baseline technology – namely the CloudBroker Platform – as the best innovation among them. Projects were examined regarding their innovation readiness, innovation management and market potential.
The Cloudbroker platform is one of the key technology components of the platform that enables the deployment and execution of compute-intensive applications on different clouds, and widely automates user, software, resource, job, and invoice management. It was constantly improved and adapted to project requirements in the project by CloudBroker and ScaleTools, two Swiss companies that were partners of the project.
The cloudSME project was funded by the EU, in order to implement a scalable platform offering simulation software as a service for manufacturing end engineering SMEs.
