National Initiatives

AUTOCHEM ANR White Project (2007-2011)

Participants : Thierry Priol, Cédric Tedeschi.

The goal of the AUTOCHEM project funded under the ANR white program is the programming of desktop Grids using the chemical programming model (http://www.irisa.fr/myriads/collaborate/national/anr/autochem/ ). This project funds a PhD grant (Héctor Fernandez).

ECO-GRAPPE ANR ARPEGE Project (2009-2012)

Participant : Christine Morin.

The goal of the ECO-GRAPPE project (http://www.irisa.fr/myriads/collaborate/national/anr/autochem/ ) funded under the ANR ARPEGE program is to design, implement and validate energy saving policies in clusters.This project funds a PhD grant (Eugen Feller). Partners involved in the ECO-GRAPPE project are EDF R&D and Kerlabs.

COOP ANR COSINUS Project (2009-2012)

Participants : Christine Morin, Yvon Jégou.

The COOP project (http://coop.gforge.inria.fr/ ) funded under the ANR COSINUS program relates to multi level cooperative resource management. The two main goals of this project are to set up a cooperation as general as possible with respect to programming models and resource management systems (RMS) and to develop algorithms for efficient resource selection. Experimentations will be conducted in particular with the SALOME platform and TLSE as examples of programming environments and Marcel, DIET and XtreemOS as examples of RMS. Partners involved in the COOP project are the GRAAL and RUNTIME INRIA EPI, IRIT and EDF R&D. This project funds a research engineer (Yann Radenac).

CLOUD ANR project (October 2011 - September 2012)

Participant : Christine Morin.

The CLOUD project aims at extending an XtreemOS Grid with resources dynamically provisioned from IaaS clouds. An algorithm to select resources in a multi-cloud environment will be defined. A prototype based on XtreemOS Grid and OpenNebula and Nimbus clouds will be built. This project is related to the EIT ICT labs activity 10239 on cloud computing described in Section 8.3.2 . It funds a research engineer.

HEMERA INRIA AEN (2010-2013)

Participants : Christine Morin, Yvon Jégou.

The Myriads team is involved in the HEMERA large wingspan project funded by INRIA (http://www.grid5000.fr/mediawiki/index.php/Hemera ). This project aims at demonstrating ambitious up-scaling techniques for large scale distributed computing by carrying out several dimensioning experiments on the Grid'5000 infrastructure, at animating the scientific community around Grid'5000 and at enlarging the Grid'5000 community by helping newcomers to make use of Grid'5000. Yvon Jégou is co-chair of the "Bring Grids Power to Internet-Users thanks to Virtualization Technologies" working group.

INRIA ADT Aladdin (2008-2012)

Participant : Yvon Jégou.

The Aladdin technological development action funded by INRIA aims at the construction of a scientific instrument for experiments on large-scale parallel and distributed systems, building on the Grid'5000 platform (http://www.grid5000.fr ). It structures INRIA's leadership role as the institute is present in 8 of the 9 Grid'5000 sites distributed across France.

An executive committee, where each of the 10 project-teams supporting Grid'5000 in the 8 research centers is represented, meets every month. It gives recommendations to the directors on scientific animation, access policy to the instrument as well as for the hardware and software development according to the resources devoted to this ADT. Yvon Jégou represents INRIA Rennes in this executive committee.

The technical team is now composed of 12 engineers, of which 3 are hosted in the Myriads team (David Margery, technical director, (SED (The SED is the INRIA Experimentation and Development Service.) member), Pascal Morillon (SED member), Ghislain Charrier).This technical team is structured in a sysadmin team, managing the instrument, and a development team building the tools to build, execute and analyze experiments.

INRIA ADT XtreemOS Easy (2010-2012)

Participants : Christine Morin, Yvon Jégou.

The XtreemOS EASY technological development action funded by INRIA aims at developing a set of tools and environments to ease the installation, configuration, deployment, experimentation and use of the XtreemOS Grid operating system and at providing support to the XtreemOS open source community. Two associate engineers are involved in this project: Amine Belhaj and Rémy Garrigue. David Margery (SED) is tutoring them in software development.

INRIA ADT DAUM (2011-2012)

Participants : Erwan Daubert, Jean-Louis Pazat.

We participate to the ADT DAUM which is coordinated by the Triskell Team. DAUM is a a Technology Development Action (ADT) by INRIA aiming at providing an integrated platform for distributed dynamically adaptable component based applications. DAUM unites and integrates results and software from the Triskell EPI and the Myriads team. More precisely, DAUM extends the Kevoree component framework designed by Triskell with adaptation mechanisms from the SAFDIS framework designed by Myriads.

DAUM will evaluate this integration by designing a full scale system for a tactical assistant for firefighter officers, in collaboration with the firefighters organization of Ille et Vilaine department (2800 firefighters).

Project duration:

October 2011 - September 2012

Triskell budget share:

One associated engineer shared with the Triskell EPI

Project Coordinator:

Noël Plouzeau, Triskell INRIA Project.
