Launching ASCETiC Project

Adapting Service lifeCycle towards EfficienT Clouds (ASCETiC) project, is a 3-year-project granted by the FP7 program with an EC funding of 3.2M € and total costs of 4.4M €. It was kicked-off in October 2013.
ASCETiC is focused on providing novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying and running software in Clouds. At the same time, quality of service, experience and perception will be taken into account, so energy efficiency will complement them and boost cloud efficiency at several dimensions.
ASCETiC will result in an implementation of an Open Source Cloud stack providing energy efficiency at software, platform and infrastructure layers, providing incremental versions approaching the problem in three levels: static, intra-layer and inter-layer adaptation.
