JRA1.5 - Definition and Implementation of the Infrastructure Area Work Plan - Task Force Cloud and Virtualization

Mandate and expected results

  • Explore possibilities of how virtualization and cloud technologies / infrastructures are useful in the context of EMI
  • Prepare a rough infrastructure / architecture sketch; an overview figure how clouds are used in context of EMI
  • Expected is a 5 page document including the content from the above two points


  • Focus is clouds and thus only virtualization in this context
  • Related technical objectives can be found in DNA1.3.1

Guidelines / Hints

  • Explore existing virtualization solutions (e.g. XEN, VMWare, etc.)
  • Focus is only virtualization in context of EMI components
  • Take existing work of the EMI components (e.g. WNODES) into account and evaluate it
  • Does it make sense to create a product team and/or which EMI components are affected?
