UBITECH participates at the kick-off meeting of the AERO Research and Innovation Action on Accelerated European Cloud

UBITECH participated at the kick-off meeting hosted by ICCS in Athens, Greece (January 23-24, 2023) of the AERO Research and Innovation Action, officially started on January 1st, 2023. The project is funded by European Commission under Horizon Europe Programme (Grant Agreement No. 101092850) and spans on the period January 2023 – December 2025. AERO aims to upbring and optimize an open-source software ecosystem that encompasses a wide range of software components ranging from operating systems to compilers, runtimes, system software and auxiliary software deployment services for cloud computing.

The AERO software stack combines the aforementioned software components with novel software and hardware interfaces as a means to seamlessly exploit the heterogeneity aspects of the EU processor with regards to high performance, energy efficiency, and security. The ultimate objective of AERO is to facilitate easy migration of existing cloud customers to a cloud infrastructure that harnesses the capabilities of the EU processor.

Within AERO, UBITECH’s main activities have a two-fold focus:  to bring up and optimize the AERO selected services for cloud management, deployment, monitoring, and orchestration; and to ensure interoperability with the software artefacts developed in other WPs for deployment on the AERO platform/EU cloud.
