BonFIRE Cloud facility NOW OPEN!

posted 1 Feb 2013, 08:00 by Vegard Engen
Following two successful Open Calls that have given academic researchers, developers and SMEs access to the Cloud infrastructures in BonFIRE, it is now possible to apply for running experiments as part of the Open Access initiative. This is your chance to get involved and test your innovative ideas for free!

BonFIRE allows users to evaluate the effects of converged service and network infrastructures; assess the socio-economic impact of new Cloud services; and to combine Cloud computing and data storage with novel networking scenarios. Essentially, BonFIRE enables developers to research new, faster, cheaper or more flexible ways of running applications.

In Open Access, you will have access to a multi-site Cloud facility for applications, services and systems experimentation:
  • Large-scale, heterogeneous and virtualised compute, storage and networking resources
  • Full control of your resource deployment
  • In-depth monitoring and logging of physical and virtual resources
  • Advanced Cloud and network features
  • Ease of use of experimentation
