Strategic Technical Presenation

  1. 1. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 1 This project has received funding from the European Union’s Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme under grant agreement no 621009 Technical Presentation
  2. 2. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 2
  3. 3. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 3  The penetration of cloud computing in Governmental bodies (public administrations, municipalities etc) is low  The complexity of the ‘required’ applications is continuously increasing  Shift from dynamic portals to collaborative applications  Diverse development stacks  Many new services tend to be even cross-border e.g.  exchange of civil registry certificates  exchange of personal data
  4. 4. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 4  Cross-border applications generate additional technical requirements  Identity management • Proposed Solution: usage of STORK  Secure attribute exchange • Proposed Solution: usage of SEMIRAMIS  As a result there is an increased need for a Cloud Orchestrator which will be able to:  Store and instantiate complex governmental applications (reusability)  Provide proper governance (multi-IaaS environments)
  5. 5. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 5 STRATEGIC will deliver the necessary cloud-enabled infrastructure and associated services/tools to governmental bodies, enabling:  Existing public services deployment, migration to the cloud and replication.  Reuse of existing cloud-based services across different regions.  Composition of novel services based on already deployed services.  Secure and privacy friendly adaptation, governance and development of public cloud services.
  6. 6. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 6 Duration: 36 months Start Month: January 2014 End Month: December 2016 Total Budget: 4.762.001€ Total Funding: 2.381.000€ Project Coordinator: Technical Coordinator: Technology Providers Pilot Cases Uranus Computing The City of Genoa Municipality of Stari-Grad Camden
  7. 7. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 7  Documentation of common use cases of public cloud services in the public sector.  Solutions for migrating on-line distributed services to the cloud.  A marketplace for public cloud services.  Solutions for porting and adapting public cloud services across different organizations in the EU.  Creation of STRATEGIC framework, a unified framework for the migration, adaptation and composition of public cloud services evaluated by real users.  Piloted STRATEGIC solution in three governmental bodies: CAMDEN (UK), Genoa (Italy) and Municipality of Stari Grad (Serbia).
  8. 8. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 8 Common Application Packaging Format Expressive enough Describe monolithic, or multi-tier applications with several interdependencies Configuration Management Post-installation configuration Interoperability at the hypervisor level Avoidance of vendor lock-in Abstraction layer over hypervisors’ APIs Interoperability on Monitoring Measure performance at application-level Measure performance at VM-level

  10. 10. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 10  Packaged-Applications Repository  Storage of all applications  Credential Management Component  Storage and management of user credentials  Configuration Recipes Repository  Storage of configuration templates for deployed applications  Configuration Framework  Configuration of Horizontal Services  Governance Component  Start, Stop, Pause or Delete workloads regardless of the underlying infrastructure
  11. 11. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 11 It defines the characteristics of a workload and allows parameterization before deployment
  12. 12. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 12 Even security aspects can be defined at will
  13. 13. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 13 Overview Page provides info of registered clouds and deployed applications
  14. 14. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 14 Application is configured before deployment through Service Store UI
  15. 15. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 15 Configuration of VM parameters is also available and restricted to the options supported by the application to be deployed
  16. 16. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 16 The deployed service is managed through the Service Store UI

  18. 18. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 18  Cloud-enable of existing services, and develop new cloud-based services.  Access to the STRATEGIC marketplace with a pool of existing cloud-enabled services to reuse.  Ability to use and manage public resources effectively from the STRATEGIC platform.  Freedom of choice among different infrastructures.  Tools provided for compliance with Local Government requirements.  Ability to protect the computing resources with Cloud based security solutions provided by STRATEGIC (leveraging BT Intelligent Protection & BT Secure Cloud Storage).
  19. 19. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 19  End-users of the public services deployed on cloud through the STRATEGIC framework.  Comprehensively secure citizen-facing cloud applications and services across multiple cloud platforms and providers to protect them against cyber attacks (leveraging BT Intelligent Protection)  Protection of citizen data residing in the cloud (leveraging BT Secure Cloud Storage)  Data protection required by the law in the EU for authentication (leveraging Stork).  A secure- and privacy-aware mechanism of cross-border electronic information exchange (leveraging Semiramis).
  20. 20. CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7 Page 20  Publishing and reselling services through STRATEGIC platform and Marketplace leveraging BT’s enterprise cloud service store capability.  Integrate their business processes into appropriate governmental processes found in STRATEGIC marketplace.  Facilitate Cloud Application Developers and ISVs to adapt existing public services to cloud, using the governance toolkit of STRATEGIC project.
