MIKELANGELO

Project description: We were a project partner in the project MIcro KErneL virtualizAtioN for hiGh pErfOrmance cLOud and hpc systems. The project is targeted to disrupt the core underlying technologies of Cloud computing, enabling even bigger uptake of Cloud computing, in particular, HPC in the Cloud and Big Data technologies under one umbrella.

Layers in the current Cloud architecture unnecessarily add to the complexity of Cloud systems, hampering its efficiency from responsiveness and reliability aspects, and security in multi-tenant environments. Other components, such as virtualized I/O also haven’t been addressed appropriately in terms of optimization in the past. Finally, there are problems in management of virtualized environments that currently don’t allow for flexible and unified use of diverse resources. This brings us to the vision of MIKELANGELO project: improving responsiveness, agility and security of the virtual infrastructure through packaged applications – virtual appliances.
