Christine Morin, research manager at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique research center, received the “Étoiles de l’Europe”’s prize last december, 16. This prize reward her implication in an european project called “Contrail, open computing infrastructures for elastic services”.

ConPaaS is a cloud platform that allows one to easily deploy arbitrary applications in various locations. We show how a video game server can easily be packaged and deployed on the platform, then demonstrate the necessity of placing the server side of interactive applications as close as possible from the clients: the closest the cloud instance, the better the gaming experience. Allowing application providers to place cloud instances in immediate proximity of the users accessing them is the main topic of the MC-DATA project we are working on.

Supported by French research institute Inria, SimGrid is an open source tool for the simulation of distributed systems. Over the last 15 years, it has become a staple in more than one scientific community across the globe, contributing to performance optimization in many contexts. The next challenge is to help SimGrid reach the industry, an effort for which Inria is about to start a two-year Technical Action, as project coordinator Martin Quinson explains.
Many applications these days rely on the well-choreographed execution of thousands of tasks run concomitantly or sequentially. These workflows often spread over a large number of nodes. Hence the complexity and the need to organize them efficiently. Initiated at Inria research center in Rennes, Brittany, France, GinFlow is an innovative workflow execution manager that not only provides a mechanism for adapting workflows at runtime but also implements a technique for decentralizing the coordination of the execution, making it more fault tolerant.
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.
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.
