CYCLONE developed a solution for complete dynamic multi-cloud application management from existing, production-quality components. The solution included automated application management, advanced networking, end-to-end security, and federated identity management. The project validated and demonstrate the solution via real world applications, including bioinformatics and smart grid.
SixSq brought SlipStream, a multi-cloud application management platform, as well as its expertise in cloud computing to the collaboration. SlipStream was used as the basis for automated application deployments and extended to include advanced networking and security features. These extensions benefited existing SlipStream users and made it an even more compelling solution.
