Back from TridentCom 2012


I just went back from the 2012 edition of TridentCom.
The conference was great with very interesting papers and a lot of demos. The swimming pool was nice too :D.

Icing on the cake, the paper I made with Robert Ricci get the best paper award. On my publications page, you can now have an access to the author copy of the paper and the slides I presented during the conference.

Entropy + Fit4Green = ♥

Fit4Green is a project that is funded by the Commission of European Union. It's main goal is to reduce the direct energy consumption of ICT resources of a federation of data centres.

Since mid 2011, the resource optimizer of the Fit4Green prototype relies on the plan module of Entropy, called BtrPlace, to compute the VM placement and the server state according to various green concerns.

A research paper describing their work has been accepted to the E-energy conference. The author version of the paper is available on my publication page, or directly here.
