Redesigning the Cloud

Jean-Michel Prima - 30/08/2016

In reality, most of the world's Cloud infrastructure is made up of gigantic data centres grouped together in a surprisingly small number of places. Such a concentration creates different risks, in particular with regard to reliability. If just one of these giant sites breaks down, there could be significant consequences. Moreover, the global transport of data between the end-user and these platforms, situated at the opposite side of the world, consumes a lot of resources.  In addition, there are latency issues due to distance. Inria, in association with Orange and Renater*, is studying an alternative model that would enable the computing and storage power to be spread along the whole IP network, in particular in premises already managed by the Internet service providers.

Automating reconfiguration of intrusion detection probes for cloud computing

Jean-Michel Prima - 12/09/2017

Anti-intrusion probes help oversee security for cloud computing. For these tools to functions properly, they must be carefully adapted to the services that are hosted. The operation remains manual. Problem: virtual machines reassemble themselves continually on the servers. It is thus difficult for the operators to continually implement the necessary modifications. Hence the need to automate the process. This is the purpose of SAIDS, a tool developed by the Myriads research team at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre.

Using the cloud to simulate epizootics

Jean-Michel Prima - 21/08/2018

Large-scale simulation can help in deciding on the right strategy for curbing animal epidemics. But that requires a lot of computing power. Hence the idea of using cloud computing. The problem? Existing applications have never been designed to take advantage of the high elasticity of such an architecture. Developed at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre, DiFFuSE is a new framework enabling not only the design and management of simulations operating on the cloud, but also the conversion of old applications to enable them to exploit this distributed infrastructure. As part of a future consortium, DiFFuSE will be used to create new decision-making tools for the animal health sector.

Bringing computing and storage closer to the user

Jean-Michel Prima - 20/09/2018

A new team led by Adrien Lebre in Nantes, Stack is working to redefine the infrastructures of cloud computing. The goal: to relocate data centres to meet the new lag constraints of new uses (augmented reality, Internet of Things, etc.) while trying to minimise the energy impact. To orchestrate this transition from cloud to edge computing, academics and manufacturers rely on consistent open-source projects, such as the eco-system OpenStack supported by a community of more than 1,500 regular developers.
