Consortium creates the MultiClouds Alliance designed to evolve technologies focused on multi-clouds, DevOps and business-driven quality of service
Edinburgh, UK – 10 November 2015 – MODAClouds, funded by the European Commissions’ FP7 Cooperation in ICT program, has concluded with the release of MODAClouds DevOps Toolbox for Multi-Clouds. The Toolbox includes solutions that help DevOps identify the right clouds for their applications based on business considerations, supports users in defining the architecture of their application, its Quality of Service (QoS) requirements and any technological constraint and supports execution, monitoring, SLA management, and automatic and intelligent runtime reconfiguration of the application. These are available for testing via three public demonstrator tools at MultiCloudDevOps.com.
Craig Sheridan, Head of Research Projects, Flexiant said, “During the duration of the MODAClouds project, we used our lean startup approach towards feature integration into our Flexiant Concerto product. The outcome of the research project is to deliver solution demonstrators that companies can review as they seek to develop new technologies.”
For those companies interested in commercially viable multi-cloud solutions already available in the market, Flexiant Concerto is available today. It enables DevOps to build, deploy, configure, run, publish, monitor, load balance and auto-scale applications straight to the cloud or multiple clouds of their choice.”
