Building service testbeds for Future Internet Research and Experimentation
The BonFIRE (Building service testbeds for Future Internet Research and Experimentation) Project will design, build and operate a multi-site cloud facility to support applications, services and systems research targeting the Internet of Services community within the Future Internet. The BonFIRE Project aims to give researchers access to an experimental facility which enables large scale experimentation of their systems and applications, the evaluation of cross-cutting effects of converged service and network infrastructures and the assessment of socio-economic and other non-technological impact.
BonFIRE will operate a Cloud facility based on an Infrastructure as a Service delivery model with guidelines, policies and best practices for experimentation. BonFIRE will adopt a federated multi-platform approach providing interconnection and interoperation between novel service and networking testbeds. The platform will offer advanced services and tools for services research including cloud federation, virtual machine management, service modelling, service lifecycle management, service level agreements, quality of service monitoring and analytics. Where appropriate BonFIRE will reuse and adapt existing tools from other FIRE projects such as Panlab, Federica and Deisa.
In February 2013, the BonFIRE Open Access started for non-consortium partners. Anyone interested please visit www.bonfire-project.eu/involved for further information
BonFIRE started on the 01.06.2010 and will run until the 30.11.2013.
