About CloudPerfect

Cloud computing has become an integral part of IT and will evolve into an equally integral part of IT strategies. However, there are still several challenges to tackle, among others: application and infrastructure management, performance awareness/assurance, Service Level Agreement (SLA) compliance and optimized provider selection. CloudPerfect offers a set of tools addressing these challenges.

CloudPerfect is a project co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It aims at delivering a set of tools to support cloud customers (IaaS - Infrastructure as a Service - customers) in finding the “perfect cloud” which fits their specific needs and cloud providers in improving trust from their existing and potential customers.

CloudPerfect aims at making it easier for IaaS customers to select the provider that best fits their needs, tailored to their specific application type through a toolkit which provides them:

  • Performance rankings consideration to minimize time needed to review and select the appropriate provider
  • Clear and abstracted price/profit trade-offs, through reliable  measurement tools/metrics, based on measurements performed against the compared services in a repetitive manner
  • Reliable monitoring and fast reporting of SLA compliance of public IaaS services, adapting to the terms and conditions of each service
  • A generic, cloud provider independent, deployment and application management tool, to help avoid vendor lock-in, on the basis of different criteria and management logic
  • Means to understand the computational needs of their application and map it to the performance rankings.

ICON Technology and Process Consulting Ltd. brings into the project over 25 years of experience in the CFD fields.

ICON brings CFD software and cloud service experiences to help developing CloudPerfect tools, participating to the testing and continuous improvement of the toolkit.
