Cloud Open Source Research Mobility Network (CloudStars)

Type: Contract Project

Duration: from 2023 Jan 01 to 2026 Dec 31

Financed by: European Research Executive Agency

Prime Contractor: Universitat Rovira i Virgili (University) - Spain

CloudStars is an Open Source Research Mobility network in the field of Cloud Computing technology. The general goals of the project are: 1. Increase the impact of European researchers with contributions to key open source projects and the involvement in open source communities. 2. Rise the careers of European researchers through well-established networks both across EU and with global open source players. 3. Increase the reproducibility of results in Science and Data Analytics through standard Cloud container technologies. Technical goals are: 1. Development and benchmarking of next generation container technologies leveraging open source Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) projects and GAIAX protocols. 2. Design novel cloud serverless middleware over container technologies including Function as a Service, serverless containers, and event-based orchestration. 3. Apply novel machine learning techniques for managing containerized Cloud and Edge systems, involving the infrastructure and configuration of executions and services.
