ICCLab invited Federico Facca, from Create-Net, to give an overview of the research activities, of his lab, and relevant projects in execution.
Around two hours were dedicated to this event to exchange reciprocally information about the activities and innovation interests.
The first part of the presentation, of Federico, was dedicated to introduce how Create-Net is organised and areas of competences:
CREATE-NET, headquartered in Trento – Italy, is an international research center which operates as a non-profit association and with a mission to built around four key points: Achieve Research excellence in ICT, promote technology & innovation transfer and have a focus on key application areas and services. One of key goals is to provide significant benefit to the Autonomous Province of Trento. It is mainly structured in the following application domains:Intelligent transportation and sustainable mobility, Interactive and mobile social media, Smart Energy Systems and Well being and e-health.
After this introductory speech, most of the time was dedicated to the FI-PPP XI-FI project and Mirantis FUEL tool that is used to automate the introduction and configuration of new nodes in the federated cloud XI-FI. Mirantis opened its private library, of configuration and deployment tools for OpenStack, to the public. The library, called FUEL, has already been used in many OpenStack projects that the company completed for its business customers. ZHAW ICCLab is very interested in Fuel because it will be used in its datacenter.
The event was concluded with a round table with introduction of reseach interests and projects by each researcher of ICCLab.
ZHAW ICCLAB and Create-Net are contributing to the FI PPP programme with their participations to FI-WARE and XI-FI respectively. Nevertheless, both the organisations are participating to the CONCORD supporting and coordination action of FI PPP.
