SORMA: Self-organizing ICT resource management

Funded under: FP6-IST


Most consumers cannot predict their resource demand. They may have a clear idea of their average need, but still be subject to significant peaks in demand. Buying additional hardware allows the consumers to meet peaks in demand. However, the additional resources may sit idle for much of the time until the next period of heavy demand. Sorma solves this problem by providing a method for bringing such consumers with providers of computing resources together to reduce ICT infrastructure costs and enhance the overall resource utilization. In the context of Green IT, the reduction of costs accompanies the reduction of idle resources, which has an impact on society due to lower power usage.
