ALASCA Tech-Talk #16

ALASCA Tech-Talk #16 | Infrastructure Manager (IM): TOSCA-based cloud orchestration and deployment | Miguel Caballer

The ALASCA Tech Talks provide a platform to discuss projects that have the potential to improve the digital sovereignty of digital infrastructures and cloud services, as well as use cases that rely on these digital sovereign infrastructures and services.

Missed the Tech Talk? No problem, you can find all the recordings on our ALASCA YouTube channel.

Infrastructure Manager (IM): TOSCA-based cloud orchestration and deployment

Miguel Caballer (Researcher at UPV-GRyCAP)

Applications and services require customised computational environments that can be provisioned from multiple cloud providers (e.g. on-premises clouds, public clouds, federated platforms). However, the use of these platforms requires users to have non-trivial skills. For that, the Infrastructure Manager (IM) is a tool that deploys complex and customised virtual infrastructures on multiple back-ends. The IM automates the Virtual Machine Image (VMI) selection, deployment, configuration, software installation, monitoring and update of virtual infrastructures. It supports various back-ends, thus making user applications Cloud agnostic. In addition, it features DevOps capabilities, based on Ansible, to enable the installation and configuration of all the user-required applications, providing the user with a fully functional infrastructure. The IM has been extensively adopted in European research projects, and it is being used in production in the EGI Federated Cloud (one of the largest distributed computing infrastructures for research), to support the deployment of customised virtual infrastructures with popular software (e.g. Kubernetes, Daskhub, JupyterHub, Galaxy, etc.).
