BonFIRE: Free access to multi-site Cloud testbed

CISA Seminar Series
Speaker: 
Kostas Kavoussanakis

Abstract: BonFIRE [1] is a multi-site testbed for Cloud and distributed applications. It is designed and operated as a specialised resource for testing and experimentation. The value of BonFIRE comes from functionality that one needs for testing and validation, but is not available from commercial Cloud offerings; combined with large, international scale that one may not get on owned clouds. BonFIRE also includes functionality to test network-related aspects.

BonFIRE is founded on four pillars: Observability, Control, Advanced Cloud Features and Ease of Use. In this talk I will highlight the most important aspects of these pillars as they have been implemented on BonFIRE. I will also discuss briefly how you can get access [2] to BonFIRE free of charge.
