A "CLOUD computing" platform created by a Scottish software developer has been chosen as the test bed for a €7 million (£5.8m) European Union project.
Technology companies including BT, Atos Origin and SAP will use FlexiScale - which was developed by Livingston-based Flexiant - to test out software tools needed to run the next generation of cloud computing.
The high-level objective of the OPTIMIS project is to enable an open and dependable Cloud Service Ecosystem that delivers IT services that are adaptable, reliable, auditable and sustainable (ecological and economical). The key goal is to allow organizations to automatically and seamlessly externalize services and applications to trustworthy and auditable cloud providers. This ecosystem will give rise to a strengthened European ICT industry able to meet key societal and economical needs.
