Bilateral Grants with Industry
We have a collaboration with Orange. This collaboration is sealed through a CIFRE Phd grant. The research of the Phd student (Arthur Chevalier) focuses on placement and compliance aspects of software licenses in a Cloud architecture. Today, the use of software is regulated by licenses, whether they are free, paid for and with or without access to its sources. The number of licenses required for specific software can be calculated with several metrics, each defined by the software vendor. Our goal is to propose a deployment algorithm that takes into account different metrics.
