4 IRMOS gave a tutorial at WATERS 2010, July 2010, Brussels (Belgium), about how to use the real-time scheduler for Linux developed within the project IRMOS Tutorial at WATERS 2010 (jointly with ECRTS 2010), July 2010, Brussels (Belgium) During the WATERS 2010 workshop held in Brussels on July 6 th, 2010, jointly with the 22 nd Euromicro Conference on Real-Time and Embedded Systems (ECRTS 2010), one of the most important European conferences on real-time and embedded systems, IRMOS was present with a tutorial about how to use the real-time scheduler for Linux developed within the project. There were nearly 20 people attending the tutorial. The IRMOS real-time scheduler raised a lot of interest in the audience, as witnessed by the many questions posed about how it works, its internals, efficiency issues, and others. The tutorial slides can be found at: More information about the WATERS 2010 can be found at: International Broadcast Convention, IBC 2010, September 2010, Amsterdam (The Netherlands) IRMOS will be at the next International Broadcast Convention, IBC 2010, 9-14 September 2010, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, were it is foreseen to present the latest IRMOS results (it will take place after closing the edition of this newsletter). This yearly event is committed to providing the world s best event for everyone involved in the creation, management and delivery of content for the entertainment industry with over 45,500 visitors in

5 Special Topic: The IRMOS Cloud Solution The IRMOS approach and technical solutions constitute a new generation of Service Oriented Cloud Computing environment. IRMOS addresses the three main cloud service models: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). The main objective of IRMOS is to enable real-time interaction and collaboration between people, using distributed multimedia applications running on top of a cloud infrastructure, where processing, storage and networking are delivered with guaranteed levels of service. The IRMOS approach and technical solutions constitute a new generation of Service Oriented Cloud Computing environment. IRMOS addresses the following cloud service models: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): provided by the IRMOS Intelligent Service Oriented Network Infrastructure (ISONI), offering virtualized computing, networking and storage capabilities Platform as a Service (PaaS): provided by the IRMOS Service Engineering tools, which support the application modelling and performance estimation, and the Service Management tools, supporting the deployment and management of applications at runtime Software as a Service (SaaS): provided by a set of tools and a specific methodology for the creation and adaptation of interactive applications for virtualized real-time service infrastructures Figure 4: The IRMOS Cloud Solution You can find more detailed information about the IRMOS Cloud Solution by clicking on the IRMOS Solution pictures at: All publications from the IRMOS project can be downloaded from project.eu/publications/ 5

6 Recent project outcomes Five new public deliverables have been finalized during the period March 2010 to August 2010, addressing topics related to the IRMOS infrastructure domain, the overall architecture and the integrated prototype. Five public deliverables have been finalized since the latest Newsletter issue (March 2010 to August 2010). Major outcomes are related to the following topics: An updated version of the IRMOS overall architecture has been released. The corresponding report explains the functionality of all building blocks and covers the real-time, virtualization, business and security aspects of the project. In addition, the relation of the platform with the cloud and *aas concepts are highlighted since the IRMOS project is at the edge between grid and cloud computing. The final version of the platform architecture will be released end of October (For more information on the topic see D3.1.3 D3.1.3 Updated version of IRMOS Overall Architecture ) In the IRMOS infrastructure domain, also known as ISONI (Intelligent Service Oriented Network Infrastructure), there have been updates both in the Execution Environment area and in the Networking area. The ones that are publicly available are detailed in the following: o Beside computing and storage capabilities ISONI provides connectivity between Application Service Components. Research has been conducted to extend the connectivity in order to make it QoS aware. During the latest project period we especially investigated QoS-related concepts and related issues such as traffic classification, traffic policing and flow shaping methods of the Flow Control concept. One target of the ISONI Flow Control Architecture was to base it upon existing network architectures. This means that it can be deployed in today s networks and use their advantages, such as e.g. MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching). The main challenges and innovations in the development of the Flow Control Architecture are: sustaining individual QoS guarantees for co-existing service overlays on ISONI; sustaining these guarantees on a shared transport medium; an application-unaware ISONI Flow Control concept; a flexible ISONI internal QoS concept allowing network resource optimization. (For more information see D7.3.2 Final version of Flow Control Architecture ) o The Path Supervision is part of the overall IRMOS ISONI Path Manager functional entity. The work performed on the Path Manager during the latest project period enhances the architecture in terms of functionality and level of detail and makes use of results and feedback achieved from the first prototype tests. The Path Manager allows the supervision of individual network links and analyzes their performance in order to optimize the network resource usage and to trigger counter measures in case of misbehavior or failure. The latest work covers mainly two major aspects of the Path Supervision architecture, namely: the network monitoring of deployed executed Virtual Service Networks (VSN); the network infrastructure health supervision, detecting outages and degradation of available transport resources. (For more information see D7.4.2 Final version of Path supervision Architecture ) 6

7 The initial IRMOS Integrated Prototype was successfully demonstrated at the second annual project review, April Some related results are already publicly available: o The demonstrator of IRMOS has been designed to show the innovations of the project using the individual characteristics of the three selected scenarios: Interactive Real-time elearning, Digital Film Postproduction and Virtual and Augmented Reality (VAR). Although all scenarios cover the different phases of the processes prior and during execution of an application in IRMOS, each scenario validates specific aspects of the IRMOS platform: The elearning scenario is used to demonstrate the Service Engineering Tools, the resource estimation process and the isolation and scheduling capabilities of the execution environment. The VAR scenario shows the SLA negotiation process, the CPU and network resource allocation and the QoS characteristics in relation to the execution of interactive real-time applications. Finally, the Digital Film Postproduction scenario explores the usage of the storage and the QoS mechanisms associated with it. In order to show the adaptability of the platform and the feasibility of the execution phase, the demonstrator included Virtual Service Network description, configuration, execution and monitoring for all three application scenarios. The demonstrator has been designed along the phases that an application should cover to be executed in IRMOS, from the design, modelling and benchmarking to the actual SLA negotiation, deployment and execution of the application to be used by distributed clients. (For more information see D8.3.1 Initial Demonstrator ) o Based on the key features and innovations that the IRMOS Prototype is providing, a set of test cases was defined, which was used to validate the prototype. This helps to track the specific test cases for the Framework Services and ISONI back to the user requirements, innovations and the IRMOS capabilities expected from the application scenarios. This has allowed ensuring that the evaluation of IRMOS is complete and all user requirements have been taken in consideration. (For more information see D8.2.2 Initial version of Testing and Evaluation Report ) All IRMOS public deliverables are available at 7

8 Upcoming Events Some major events where IRMOS will be present in the next months are the following: The IRMOS project will have a booth in the next ICT 2010: Digitally Driven, September 2010, Brussels. The goal of our stand is to allow visitors to experience how cloud environments can serve the needs of interactive real-time multimedia applications. To this direction, three different application scenarios will be used, namely Digital Film Postproduction, Interactive Real-time elearning and Virtual & Augmented reality. The visitors will not only be shown but also interact with the demonstration in order to learn: how to allow a group of colourists, editors and sound operators, located in different countries, collaborate during film post-production; how mobile users can get real-time and highly configurable elearning content based on contextual information; how to deploy a collaborative environment for an automotive company to evaluate car prototype simulation results by means of virtual and augmented reality. Meet us at the R&D Zone of the exhibition area! The IRMOS project will show several demonstrations at the next Collaboration Meeting of the Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering Unit of the EC, Brussels, October Meet us at the QoS&SLAs and in the Virtualised Service Platforms collaboration working groups!
