Infrastructure as a Service bundle: ISONI


ISONI (Intelligent Service Oriented Network Infrastructure) is an IaaS environment consisting of a network of resources (e.g. CPU, storage, software) managed and controlled by a middleware which allows resource sharing among multiple services. The general idea is to provide QoS capable infrastructure resources on demand for dynamically deployed services.

ISONI provides fully virtualized resources and QoS guarantees as required by interactive real-time applications, as well as discovery, advanced resource reservation and allocation of resources.

ISONI is considered to be one of the main IRMOS exploitable items. ISONI provides a cloud infrastructure as a service, offering computing, storage as well as networking as a service.

Following the individual interests and exploitation plans of the involved partners, ISONI will be released through a mix of open source components and components under proprietary license.
