Bilateral Contracts with Industry

Participants : Ronan-Alexandre Cherrueau, Marie Delavergne, Adrien Lebre [Contact point] , Javier Rojas Balderrama, Matthieu Simonin.

Following the ENOS bilateral contract (“Contrat de Recherche Externalisé”) between Orange and Inria (Sept 2017-Oct 2018), we agreed with Orange Labs to pursue this collaboration around a second contrat. This new contrat, which is going to last 18 months for a budget of  150K€, targets the following objectives:

  • Strengthen the Enos framework and the resulting EnosLib solution (see Section 6.4 and Section 6.5).

  • Define an experimental protocol allowing the automatozed and reproducible evaluation of an OpenStack instance in a WANWide context.

  • Develop a DSL to reify location aspects at the CLI level in order to create new resources (image, VM, etc.) through a set of OpenStack instances while guaranteeing a notion of master copy.
