Strategic Goals

It has become increasingly important to transfer loads between cloud environments of different vendors – Multi-Cloud approach – as well as to create applications in such a manner that they can be automatically deployed in different environments. However, cloud solution providers have a very diversified offer, different ways of using it (API) and various, incomparable price lists. In addition, it is in the interest of suppliers to attach the client as much as possible to each other and prevent him from moving to another supplier (vendor lock-in).

Solutions Developed / Used

MELODIC will enable data-intensive applications to run within defined security, cost, and performance boundaries seamlessly on geographically distributed and federated cloud infrastructures. Serving the user’s needs and constraints, MELODIC will realise the potential of Cloud computing for big data and data-intensive applications by transparently taking advantage of distinct characteristics of available private and public clouds, dynamically optimise resource utilisation, consider data locality, conform to the user’s privacy needs and service requirements, and counter vendor lock-in.
