Report on standardisation activities

This deliverable will summarise the contribution of the COLA project to standardisation of cloud orchestration at the level of applications.

Project progress monitoring and Quality Management

It will outline how the project will monitor its progress and resources used to achieve the progress. It will also describe the internal quality/risk management strategy and how it will be implemented.

Final dissemination report

This deliverable will report on all dissemination activities and training courses during the second part of the project (M13-M30). The deliverable will also report on the two main dissemination events for industry that will be organized to disseminate the project to the general audience, industrial forums, stakeholders and SMEs. The deliverable will contribute to the dissemination plan section of the plan to disseminate and exploit foreground knowledge.

This deliverable includes the COLA reference implementations together with the reference module specifications.

Requirements gathering and performance benchmarking of microservices

This deliverable will report on the initial functional and non-functional cloud infrastructure and access layer level requirements of typical MiCADO microservices, and will analyse first performance benchmarks of these microservices. WP4 requested to extend the submission deadline of this report to M16 from M14
