Title: OCCIware: Extensible and Standard-based XaaS Platform To Manage Everything in The Clouds
Speaker: Marc Dutoo, Smile
Date: March 15, 2017

Abstract: Who uses multi cloud today ? Everybody. Docker AND VMs, scaling internally AND bursting to Amazon, storing on a public cloud except for data legally required to stay within the country: different solutions for different needs, but more often than not used at the same time. Alas, this leads to a "noodle plate" architecture where a lot of "technical glue" with the various, incompatible clouds creeps in and makes it impossible to evolve.

To solve this problem, the OCCIware project builds on the Open Cloud Computing (OCCI) standard's unified, uniform architectural approach and provides a platform to manage all layers and domains of the Cloud (XaaS), with two main components: the OCCIware Studio Factory and Runtime. The talk includes a demonstration of the Docker connector and of how to use the OCCIware Cloud Designer to configure a real life, SmartCity-themed Cloud application (a Java API server on top of a MongoDB cluster)'s business, platform and infrastructure layers seamlessly on both VirtualBox and OW2's OpenStack infrastructure.
