Dynamic and safe in the cloud

German startup cloudSME presents European Innovation Action COLA at the HANNOVER MESSE 2017

European Innovation Action COLA (Cloud Orchestration at the Level of Application – www.project-cola.eu) develops reference implementations of a generic and pluggable framework that supports the optimal, secure deployment and run-time orchestration of cloud applications on the cloudSME multi-cloud platform.

cloudSME, one of the core partners of COLA, will demonstrate several use cases which illustrate the feasibility of COLA’s cloud technology in the areas of simulation based evacuation modelling,  and social and open data analysis to develop and improve public services.

COLA’s objective is to develop a generic open-source toolkit, called MiCADO (Microservice-based Cloud Application-level Dynamic Orchestrator) that facilitates the automatic scalability of applications with improved security in the cloud.

MiCADO Services enable a wide range of applications to auto-scale the resources needed in a dynamic and efficient way. The well-defined interfaces of MiCADO  facilitate its seamless integration into existing applications without major reengineering of the applications’ original code. MiCADO provides full control for its operators by automatically enforcing user-defined quality of service parameters. If needed, the application can scale its resources up or down to guarantee optimal execution and efficient resource utilization. MiCADO will enable application developers in the private and public sectors to create cloud-aware, adaptive and secure applications without getting lost in the low level details of cloud computing.

cloudSME, a European startup and Competence Center for cloud-based HPC simulation, has developed a European cloud-based one-stop-shop solution to provide a scalable platform for small and large scale simulations. The cloudSME Simulation Platform is linked with more than 20 cloud infrastructures and HPC centers in Europe and supports end-user SMEs to utilize customized simulation applications in the form of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) based provision. Furthermore, simulation software providers and consulting companies have access to a PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) solution to quickly assemble custom simulation applications in the cloud for their clients. Simulations facilitate optimization and as a consequence enable companies to improve their competitiveness and enhance their workflows and services efficiently.

cloudSME will attend the HANNOVER MESSE 2017 from the 24th to 28th April at hall 3, booth E02 with the COLA project and other projects of the European I4MS initiative.
