Strategic Goals

Despite their proliferation as a dominant computing paradigm, cloud computing systems lack effective mechanisms to manage their vast amounts of resources efficiently, leading to severe resource waste and ultimately limiting their applicability to large classes of critical applications that pose non-moderate resource demands.

Solutions Developed / Used

ACTiCLOUD proposes a novel cloud computing architecture for drastically improved management of cloud resources, targeting both resource efficiency and scalability. By utilizing modest investments on hardware intelligence that enables true resource disaggregation between multiple servers, ACTiCLOUD progresses current state-of-the-art in hypervisors and cloud management systems, promoting holistic resource management both at the rack scale and across distributed cloud sites.
