Contrail final publishable summary report

Rapport de synthèse final du projet européen Contrail


This document comprises the final report on the Integrated Project Contrail - “Open Computing Infrastructures for Elastic Services". The project started in October 2010 and ended in January 2014. The Contrail software stack provides for cloud administrators a platform to manage federated heterogeneous resources offering customers advanced cloud services by selecting the most suitable cloud provider matching the application requirements with performance and security guarantees. Contrail gives the illusion of using a single cloud provider which can dynamically adapt to the customers’ needs. Cloud consumers can now use a trustworthy platform to run their applications. We have developed a comprehensive set of cloud services that can be exploited by means of the Contrail software stack or as independent components. Contrail software components range at different levels from PaaS to federation of IaaS clouds, and IaaS resources. The main Contrail services are: single sign on and federated identity, automatic SLA negotiation and provider selection, dynamic authorisation and access control, distributed application deployment under SLA constraints, reliable distributed storage, virtual networks, monitoring and accounting, and PaaS runtime services. The Contrail software has been experimented and validated with a wide range of applications, both scientific and user oriented. One demonstrator was implemented, shown at different events and available on the web. The project results are available as open source software. Some of the results are already exploited by other projects and the consortium member organizations plan to exploit some of the results in follow-up research projects and in future products. 1
