Provides on-site hands on experience on distributed software systems development and operations environments delivered via visits of CUT’s staff in the premises of the two leading institutions. It also introduces actions to raise CUT’s scientific background so as to analyse and define metrics and measurement activities in such environments by exploiting the scientific knowledge and experience of the leading institutions through training activities and case analysis studies.
Provides the mechanisms for elevating CUT’s scientific background and research potential that will enable its staff to pursue the goal of automating key phases or activities within the new development software process of WP2, including implementation and synthesis of distributed apps, their monitoring and assessment according to SLA criteria, their integration with the technical environment and the management of resources in the distributed environment. These mechanisms combine training sessions delivered in workshops and summer schools, as well as exchanges of staff in the participating countries.
Suggests methods and actions followed by the leading institutions for developing the basis for experimentation and validation in joint activities with stakeholders.
Describes how the knowledge acquired will be disseminated to stakeholders in the software industry and businesses beyond it, demonstrating how they can benefit from the basic DevOps principles and distribution of services, and becoming the flagship for facilitate sustainable engagement of SMEs in future research activities and project discoveries. Also, it includes activities of preparing and presenting short papers or work in progress targeting at receiving
WP1 is responsible for the smooth operation of the project in terms of management. A strong management process and communication needs will be established within the consortium for better understanding the project goals. Furthermore, WP1 will guarantee the coordination between the partners to achieve the project objectives, meet the research targets and exchange knowledge and expertise within the time plan and the requested budget. Finally, it will ensure quality of the final results and deliverables of the project through adherence to quality and risk management plans.
This WP aims to deliver new or extend current knowledge and expertise of CUT on the automation of certain activities within the development and operation of a distributed software service/application. The primary in-put of such automated tools shall be the readings and measurements of the distributed environment. There-fore, CUT’s knowledge capacity on these topics will be strengthened by utilizing the scientific background formed in WP3. CUT’s future research plans involve actions towards automatic monitoring and reconfiguration of the software services/applications and/or the settings of the distributed environment in which they operate. The corresponding tools will rely on Computational Intelligence and statistical machine learning algorithms de-scribed in Section 1, to offer cutting edge solutions to practical problems of performance and service delivery over the Cloud.
This WP aims to achieve the transfer of knowledge at the scientific level and the sharing of best practices for facilitating the development of collaborations with stakeholders and SMEs and securing their sustainable in-volvement. It also aims at investigating standardization processes for collecting and maintaining benchmark datasets, as well as on designing and performing objective experiments for validation purposes.
This WP presents how the work conducted in this project will be published and shared with the larger community of cloud computing; sections of the society that can benefit from this project are also identified. It will also produce regular reports for dissemination and exploitation, develop a web presence so that the public and relevant stakeholders can be informed about the project objectives, results, events, workshops and summer schools.
The deliverables of the project are listed in the following table sorted by WP number. Some deliverables appearing in the lower entries of the table may have been completed and released and other in the upper rows may not. Each completed deliverable is indicated by a “√“ mark and can be downloaded by clicking on its title.
