Deliverables

ENTICE VM image analysis and optimised fragmentation 2

This deliverable describes the prototype VM image analysis tools to be incorporated in the ENTICE environment.

ENTICE knowledge base user interfaces 2

This deliverable describes the client side components and user interfaces by ENTICE, especially user interfaces used by software engineers during VM packaging.

Optimisation based on online VM image discovery, assembly and network overlays

This deliverable describes the application of the heuristics described in D4.1 for VM image discovery, assembly and network overlays, as researched in task T4.3.

This deliverable describes the interoperable VM image and image fragment storage techniques and formats.

Strategic Pareto SLA decision making and reasoning 2

This deliverable describes the strategies for Pareto SLA decision making and reasoning, and will complement deliverable D5.2.

Project dissemination and communication strategy and reporting 2

This deliverable provides information about the project dissemination plans including the specification of the target dissemination groups, publication policy, event planning and marketing. ENTICE will exploit popular web 2.0 channels and social media for further enhancing the project image and will engage the web 2.0 community as multipliers of the knowledge diffused, making ENTICE dissemination tied to the “real-world” commercial community. It also reports the dissemination activities that will take place throughout the project. This will also include initial ideas for reporting on the impact of WP7 activities considered as an ongoing task that can proactively ground ENTICE’s communication and exploitation activity in the constantly evolving realm of commercial marketing. It is an ongoing deliverable with subsequent updated versions throughout the project lifetime. As part of this deliverable we will report on any and all updates to the ENTICE website.
