Improved cloud elasticity and cleaner data centres – a joint project launched by Inria and Scalair

M.B. (*) - 31/08/2018

In September 2017, the CIRRUS team, made up of the Spirals project team from the Inria Lille - Nord Europe Research Centre and the company Scalair, was awarded the “Joint Lab‑Company Team” label by the Hauts-de-France region. The research team is working on cloud computing in two key areas: elasticity of cloud-based applications and low-carbon cloud infrastructure.

Improving Bitcoin... with forks

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 30/08/2018

Created 10 years ago, Bitcoin allows secure and anonymous payments without going through a bank. The new currency is based on a particularly well-design mechanism called a blockchain. A mixture of cryptography and distributed architecture, this tamper-proof registry guarantees the validity of successive transactions. But problems are arising: the computing cost is soaring. Energy expenditure as well. It is also impossible to manage a large number of transactions per second. Specializing in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, researcher Emmanuelle Anceaume, from Rennes, proposes two new innovations to enable it to transition to another scale.

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.

10 years of Vekia: the success story of an Inria start-up

5/07/2018

Just ten years ago, Manuel Davy, co-founder of the Sequel team from the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research centre, launched his start-up: Vekia At the time the small company, specialised in machine learning, proposed consulting services to the major retail groups in the Lille region. Today, Vekia is developing a supply chain solution for stock management. It employs approximately 50 people, works with around 20 major retail groups and, in 2017, raised 12 million Euros in order to expand.
