CloudScale participates at SPEC Research Group meeting and joined SPEC

14. 06. 2013

At April, 25th, CloudScale members participated at the annual meeting of the SPEC Research Group in Prague. The SPEC Research Group is a part of the “Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation” (SPEC) which focuses on quantitative system evaluation and analysis. Along other performance properties, scalability is of main interest for this research group. In particular, the group plans to create benchmarks and evaluation techniques for scalability. 

Two CloudScale members participated in fruitful discussions on metrics and evaluation techniques for scalability. As CloudScale sees several opportunities in continuing this cooperation with the SPEC, UPB joined the SPEC Research Group on behalf of the project at June, 12th. Therefore, CloudScale hopes to contribute to standards in scalability evaluation in the future.

The third plenary meeting of CloudScale was held in the beautiful city of Zagreb, Croatia. Ericsson Nikola Tesla were excellent hosts.

Good work was accomplished during the plenary meeting, with lively discussions and good presentations. We were all very impressed by the accomplishments of XLAB regarding the tool framework since our plenary meeting in Karlsruhe in March.

Our next plenary meeting is planned in Paderborn, Germany in September.
