International Collaborations

  • DALHIS – Data Analysis on Large-scale Heterogeneous Infrastructures for Science

The DALHIS associate team is a collaboration between the Myriads Inria project-team (Rennes, France) and the Data Science and Technology (DST) department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley, USA). The objective of the collaboration is to create a software ecosystem to facilitate seamless data analysis across desktops, HPC and cloud environments. Specifically, our goal is to build a dynamic software stack that is user-friendly, scalable, energy-efficient and fault tolerant.

  • GreenTouch – Increase network energy efficiency by a factor of 1000

GreenTouch is an international consortium of leading Information and Communications Technology industry, academic and non-governmental research experts dedicated to fundamentally transforming communications and data networks, including the Internet, and significantly reducing the carbon footprint of ICT devices, platforms and networks.

European Projects

  • BonFIRE – Building service testbeds on FIRE

The BonFIRE project will design, build and operate a multi-site Cloud prototype FIRE facility to support research across applications, services and systems at all stages of the R&D lifecycle, targeting the services research community on Future Internet.

  • Contrail – Open computing infrastructures for elastic services

The Contrail project aims to design, implement, evaluate and promote an open source computational cloud that allows users to seamlessly share resources. The project will provide a complete Cloud platform which integrates Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings; the platform will be fully available in open-source.

  • Harness – Hardware- and Network-Enhanced Software Systems for Cloud Computing

Harness is a European FP7 project which integrates heterogeneous hardware and network technologies into data center platforms, vastly increasing performance, reducing energy consumption, and lowering cost profiles for important and high-value cloud applications such as real-time business analytics and the geosciences.

  • MC-DATA – A Platform for Mobile Edge Cloud Applications

MC-DATA is an EIT ICT Labs project which aims to increase developer uptake and commercial exploitation of the ConPaaS mobile edge cloud platform through new products in the area of location-based advertising services. The activity integrates ConPaaS with the Android mobile platform to encourage mobile developer adoption, and pilots a location-based interactive advertising service with augmented reality and 3D tracking.

  • NESUS – Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing

The goal of the NESUS COST Action it to establish an open European research network targeting sustainable solutions for ultra-scale computing aiming at cross fertilization among HPC, large-scale distributed systems, and big data management.

  • PaaSage – Model-based Cloud Platform Upperware

PaaSage is a European FP7 project that aims at delivering an open platform to support both the design and deployment of cloud applications, together with an accompanying methodology to allow model-based application development, configuration, optimization, and deployment on multiple cloud infrastructures.

National Collaborations

  • Discovery – DIStributed and COoperative framework to manage Virtual EnviRonments autonomicallY

The DISCOVERY initiative aims at exploring a new way of operating Utility Computing (UC) resources by leveraging any facilities available through the Internet in order to deliver widely distributed platforms that can better match the geographical dispersal of users as well as the unending demand.

  • ELCI – Software environment for computation-intensive applications

The PIA ELCI project aims at developing a new software stack for controlling supercomputers including numerical solvers, pre-, post- and co-processing software, and programming and execution environments used in numerical simulations and HPC. These software development will be validated along with their capacity to offer a better scalability, resilience, security, modularity, abstraction and interactivity on application use-cases.

  • EPOC – Energy proportional and opportunistic computing systems

EPOC is a project of the Labex CominLabs which focuses on optimizing the energy consumption of mono-site data-centers connected to the regular electrical grid and to renewable energy sources. It aims at focusing on energy-aware task execution from the hardware to application’s components in the context of a mono-site data-center (all resources are in the same physical location) which is connected to the regular electrical Grid and to renewable energy sources, such as windmills or solar cells.

  • MIHMES – Multi-scale modeling, from animal Intra-Host to Metapopulation, of mechanisms of pathogen spread to Evaluate control Strategies

The MIHMES ANR project aims to produce scientific knowledge and methods for the management of endemic infectious animal diseases and veterinary public health risks. Its two major interlinked strategic objectives are to develop a new multi-level modeling framework to represent the complex interplay between numerous biological and managerial processes; and to develop decision tools to evaluate the epidemic-economic effectiveness of disease prevention and control strategies at the scales of the herd, the region and the supply chain.

Industrial Collaborations

  • DGA-MI – Security as a service in IaaS clouds

Our objective is to allow an IaaS cloud provider to offer terms related to security monitoring in its SLA (security as a service). A client organization should be able to specify its security monitoring requirements in a simple way (vulnerabilities to be monitored) and define in its contract with the cloud provider a tradeoff between the security monitoring efficiency and its cost (e.g. performance degradation, shared resource allocation). A cloud provider should then have a service that automatically configures the security monitoring system components under its control and automatically adapts them to the reconfigurations of the virtual infrastructure.

  • Thales Research & Technology – Agile, distributed Cyber-Physical Systems

This project focuses on the development of distributed Cyber-Physical Systems, such as those developed by Thales to monitor and react to changing physical environments. These systems need to be highly adaptable in order to cope with the dynamism and diversity of their operating environments. Notably, they require distributed, parallel architectures that support dynamic sets of applications, not known in advance, while providing strong QoS guarantees. The goal of the project is to explore adaptive resource management mechanisms for such systems that can adapt to changes in the requirements and in the availability of resources.
