3rd EU ICT IRMOS Public Seminar - The Real-Time QoS Enabled Cloud - 16 September 2010

The 3rd EU ICT IRMOS Public Seminar - "The Real-time QoS Enabled Cloud" will take place on 16 September 2010, in the University of Oslo, Gaustadalléen 23, Blindern, Oslo (Norway). Cloud computing is one of the hottest buzzwords in IT today and is expected to provide the foundation infrastructure for the Future Internet. The commoditisation of IT resources and the ability to dynamically align user demand to resource provisioning has made Clouds the success we see today through offers by vendors such as Amazon, Microsoft Azure and Salesforce. However, significant research challenges exist that are barriers to adoption by the enterprise in the areas of security and quality of service guarantees This seminar will present results from the EU ICT IRMOS project which is addressing these barriers by investigating novel approaches to support real-time QoS guarantees for interactive real-time multimedia applications on service oriented infrastructures. The seminar will cover our research on how to describe and model complex interactive applications, how to execute and monitor distributed applications that are executed on IaaS locations and future plans on how to achieve fault tolerance in the form of migration to different resources in case of failure and renegotiation in case of performance estimation errors. Challenges in QoS enabled data storage subsystems will also be presented.
