PrEstoCloud on Tour
PrEstoCloud meeting in Nicosia
PrEstoCloud project meeting was held on November 7-8, 2017 in Nicosia. Intensive discussion where conducted at both design and implementation levels. Consortium had established the path to obtain a meaningful prototype for the next milestone. The objective is to investigate the research results obtained in the project and to validate the design and implementation choices taken to build the PrEstoCloud architecture. The surveillance, media and telematics use cases were being mapped to the various technology assets in order to have a better understanding of each use case's specific validation potential.
FeelTheFuture round table
The Evropski parliament Slovenija organized an innovation round table in Ljubljana on October 13, 2017. Marija Kokelj of CVS Mobile, representing Marko Grobelnik, JSI, Digital champion of Slovenia participated in the FeelTheFuture ministerial event on Digital European Agenda and its potential.
Paris Open Source Summit 2017
The Paris Open Source Summit, the leading european event about free and open source software, occurred on 5-6 December, 2017. Its ambition is to expose the technological innovations, the reality and the economic dynamism of its solutions and their societal impacts. At this event, Activeeon held an exhibition space for two days, where the PrEstoCloud project and relevant Activeeon products were presented. The PrEstoCloud project was highlighted through a presentation at the session "FLOSS and Collaborative Innovation" about collaborative R&D publicly funded projects to highlight success factors and the role of open source software in facilitating open innovation.Slides of the presentation
ACM Internet Measurement Conference 2017
Dr. Quentin Jacquemart, from CNRS, presented a poster about PrEstoCloud result in the ACM Internet Measurement Conference on 1-3 November in London, UK. The work presented allows to measure available bandwidth between different data centers, using a much cheaper approach than the traditional iperf tool. Indeed, iperf relies on bulk transfers, which can prove costly in pay-as-you-go IaaSs. The proposed approach is based on the Pathload tool, and runned controlled experiments with Mininet. The observed results demonstrate that Pathload results were often similar to those of iperf, but with more time variability.
PrEstoCloud meeting in Cannes
A PrEstoCloud project meeting was hosted by CNRS in Cannes, France on February 6-8, 2018. The consortium extensively discussed the comments resulting from the first review in order to better position itself with respect to competing technologies. Beyond the progress on technical components and the definition of the technical requirements for all use cases, the main topic of focus was the definition of a proof of concept prototype able to showcase key features of the PrEstoCloud platform. Technical partners agreed on integration technologies, use cases partners agreed on a first iteration milestone for their use cases, and all agreed on milestones for the first iteration of the integration.
