Open Call Q&A
For experiments, we estimate 5 trips (3 internal project meetings and 2 official reviews)
For Cloud Providers, additionally there may be another 1-2 focussed technical meetings for 6-7 total (4-5 internal project meetings and 2 official reviews)
Provisional schedule would be as follows:
Additional technical meetings with Cloud Provider participation as scheduled as needed for project progress
We foresee the participation of one company, i.e. a cloud infrastructure provider.
€100.000 (max) are allocated for the inclusion of a Cloud provider.
The profile of organizations is both academics and companies active in the ‘service research’ domain that need to run experiments to further test, consolidate or optimize their service platform, software services or tools that can be encapsulated in a set of VMs.
The rules of participation are the same as for any FP7 project. We foresee to have typically one, maximum two participant organizations per experiment.
The activities to be carried out in the experiment related to this call are the following:
The profile of the company we are looking to engage with is a private/public cloud infrastructure provider with access to their own platform and the ability to support the creation of a new BonFIRE site on its infrastructure.
The rules of participation are the same as for any FP7 project.
The successful candidate will give access to their platform via programmable APIs and web-based interfaces and have enough capacity to host a lab-like project environment. The requested capacity to be dedicated to BonFIRE is in the region of 8 to 16 nodes x 4 cores (3GHz) 8 GB RAM and 2-3 Tb SAN.
The new provider should expose access to their resources by means of the Open Cloud Computing Interface (OCCI) to be accessed from the BonFIRE Resource Manager and become an additional BonFIRE site.
On the other hand, as another type of test, it will also have the install the BonFIRE stack (Resource Manager and Portal). The provider should be able to analyze and report back on issues raised and deployment errors that might be encountered within the work of the project.
The activities to be carried out in the project related to this call are the following:
Up to 4 experiments will be funded in the second open call.
We foresee the participation of normally one, maximum two organizations per experiment.
The estimated total Commission funding available per experiment is €100.000-150.000(max).
Proposals should be submitted in English.
