|Frustrated with black-box computation? Constrained by
the size of your experimentation cluster? Need to control the
conditions of your application? Let BonFIRE help!
|Want a quick trial?
|Want full access?
Following two successful Open Calls that have given
researchers, developers and SMEs access to the Cloud infrastructures in
BonFIRE, we launched the Open Access initiative to give more people the
opportunity to get involved and test innovative ideas for free!
In Open Access, you will have access to a multi-site Cloud facility for applications, services and systems experimentation:
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
- 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
For more information about what BonFIRE offers, please see our services and infrastructure pages!
The Open Access initiative has
already been hugely successful, supporting over 20 organisations in
running novel experiments on BonFIRE to test software prototypes and
validating multi-Cloud application scenarios! For example, see the
video below for the TurboCloud experiment,
which was conducted by two SMEs, RedZink and Cloudium Systems,
utilising the controlled networking features in BonFIRE to validate and
tune their products for new business models.
BonFIRE has previously funded
innovative Cloud and Internet of Service experiments through two Open
Calls. Each call had a particular focus and successful applicants became
members of the BonFIRE consortium. For more information about these Open Calls, see the 1st Open Call Results and the 2nd Open Call Results.
