ComodIT project aims to simplify and secure Cloud computing technologies by developing a new approach to automate provisioning and management of complete and integrated IT and mobile infrastructures during their entire lifecycle.
Thanks to this ambitious project, the cumbersome current approach of manually managing highly distributed systems will be replaced with an integrated and scalable approach for managing such information systems. ComodIT project will allow the description of a comprehensive list of its underlying components and consolidate the parameters to define how to assemble these components in an optimal way. Concretely, users will control their infrastructure through a central orchestration unit which offers a seamless interface to manage every application or component of the cloud, whatever the underlying OS.
ComodIT project has three-pronged objectives:
ComodIT project results are expected to address market needs by:
As the emerging markets strive for more and more flexibility in managing the IT solutions, the ComodIT project will leverage the advantages of Cloud Computing technologies to serve these enterprises. The key benefit of ComodIT project results for the businesses is the provision of simplified yet flexible computing solutions that can scale up to very large infrastructures; and can seamlessly support the features generally sought by the SMEs (such as "on-demand" and "pay as you grow"). The simplified management of underlying computing resources will enable the information system managers to coherently add or remove virtual machines, applications or any other piece of their IT infrastructure via a simple request through the ComodIT interface. Thanks to this abstraction layer, no consideration should be given to operating system flavour or version in order to install and configure any piece of software. This means, for instance, that a single unified click in the graphical interface can open the same firewall port or install the same web server on multiple machines, whatever heterogenous they might be.
