IMDEA Software joins 4Caast European project

The IMDEA Software Institute has recently joined 4Caast, a 39 month-long European project in collaboration with Telefonica, SAP, France Telecom, Nokia, Bull, 2nd Quadrant, Flexiscale, Bonitasoft, and a number of academic institutions.

4Caast aims at automatically generating, configuring, and deploying applications on the Cloud. The project will make it possible to explore feasible cloud-based application architectures in a fast, comprehensive, and error-free fashion. This will greatly reduce the time-to-market and robustness of modern architectures.

The IMDEA Software Institute was invited to join to contribute with its expertise in constraint solving and constraint programming. These technologies are key in the blueprint solver, a core component which determines which application architectures can fulfill customer requirements.
