MOdel-Driven Approach for design and execution of applications on multiple Clouds
Romanian participation

Project funded by UEFISCDI, contract nr. 215 EU/10.07.2013
for co-funding the Romanian team involved in the RTD activities of the
EC FP7-ICT MODAClouds project.
July 2013-Sept 2015

Main goal of MODAClouds:

The main goal of MODAClouds is to provide methods, a decision support system, an open source IDE and run-time environment for the high-level design, early prototyping, semi-automatic code generation, and automatic deployment of applications on multi-Clouds with guaranteed QoS. Model-driven development combined with novel model-driven risk analysis and quality prediction will enable developers to specify Cloud-provider independent models enriched with quality parameters, implement these, perform quality prediction, monitor applications at run-time and optimize them based on the feedback, thus filling the gap between design and run-time. Additionally, MODAClouds provides techniques for data mapping and synchronization among multiple Clouds.
