New Project SHECloud: Towards a hybrid and Intelligent Cloud


This project, in which we participate with the enterprises Abiquo, Claranet y MediaCloud, was selected in 2013 call of AEESD (Acción Estratégica Economía y Sociedad Digital) projects, from the Ministerio de Industria, Energía y Turismo.
Hybrid Cloud tries to combine public and private cloud strategies to offer the best features of both types. After analyzing current solutions, SHECloud pretends to create an intelligent orchestrator for the interoperability of public and private clouds, automatizing the migration of workloads (virtual machines and other resources) among clouds.
Concretely, La Salle R&D is in charge of the cloud metrics analysis and the decision process of this orchestrator. By means of scalability and criticalness metrics previously defined by the user, and a characterization process of the different types of clouds, this system will select in which cloud is more efficient to place one resource or another.
In this sense, SHECloud will permit a faster and more efficient deployment of hybrid clouds, providing SMEs a tool that will give them more flexibility in their business scalability, without needing large investments on infrastructure and optimizing the cost-efficiency of their cloud operations.
