Cloud and Container Orchestrator
About the Pilot
cloudSME is a German Cloud Native Technology Provider and operator of emGORA workspace, an European Market- and Collaboration space, providing services for the digitisation of European Manufacturers.
Application workload is historical covered by providing fixed resources on premise. The scalability of computing resources is needed to guarantee Quality of Service and operational effiency. MiCADOscale is an open-source Dev-Ops framework to automatically deploy, scale, manage and monitor containerized microservices orchestrated by Kubernetes.
The open-source engine MiCADO extends the default functionalities of state-of-the-art technology, like Kubernetes, to safeguard the implementation of more complex scaling rules and advanced security features. It automates deployment, scaling, management and monitoring of containerised microservices in multiple cloud interfaces, like OpenStack, Google Cloud Platform, Azure, AWS and many more.
The pilot focused on demonstrating the scaling capability of MiCADO by an example application (StressNG)
HOW DID MiCADO BECOME INVOLVED WITH EOSC DIH?
Through the partnership with EGI Foundation.
WHAT SERVICES WERE USED?
Participation in regular feedback meetings and technical discussions
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE OF WORKING WITH EOSC DIH AND THE VALUE OF EOSC FOR THE PILOT
“It was hard to indentify the source of the technical problems – even in the collaboration.”
“The collaboration helped us to spread the news about MiCADO and to gain experiences with MiCADO on international infrastructures.”
“Exploring the possibility to open the solution to a new market.”
Our future will be the operation and further developement of emGORA workspace. MiCADO is one of the integrated execution engines in emGORA workspace.
