- Open Source Service Platform Research
  Welcome to! The Open Source Service Platform Research initiative is committed to exploring, hosting and promoting innovative research ideas in the Internet of Services, Cloud Computing and service ecosystems. We invite researchers everywhere to use our results and to contribute back.  
Since its inception in 2008, the Open Source Service Platform Research initiative has been made possible by publicly funded research projects, additional acquired resources and internship support for students.
Google (January 2015 to March 2015)

For running experiments in the Cloud Storage Lab, in particular related to the performance and stability of CloudFusion, an award from the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) has been reeived.
DFG (since October 2013)

The DFG project SCHI 402/11-1 »Dienstbasierte Plattformkonzepte für systemübergreifende Drittanbieteranwendungen mit mobilen Komponenten im Internet der Dinge« (acronym: DaaMob) is concerned with mobile sensing and data brokering to foster information clouds and mobile information ecosystems.
HPI FutureSOC Lab (October 2013 - April 2014 and May 2014 - October 2014)

The FutureSOC Lab of the Hasso-Plattner-Institut (HPI) at University of Potsdam grants hardware infrastructure to the Cloud Storage Lab (formerly NubiSave Lab) to perform extensive performance and efficiency analysis experiments on multi-cloud storage integration with the peaCS testsuite.
EU FP7 SUCRE (September 2013)

The SUCRE Project has supported us with student participation and USB sticks to distribute a custom π-Box to all participants of the cloud track in the 2nd Karlsruhe Service Summer. practical summer courses which help disseminating and improving OSSPRI results.
CNPq (January 2012 - December 2012)

We would like to thank the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development, CNPq, for the PDJ grant 159716/2011-0 allowing intensified contacts with leading researchers and more visionary service-oriented cloud approaches. The work has resulted in the Recursive Virtualisation, Nested Cloud and Highly-Virtualised Cloud Resource Broker results.
FlexCloud (October 2010 - September 2013)

This work has received funding from the European Social Fund and the Free State of Saxony, Germany, under project number 080949277. Major results were SPACE-Cloud, the NubiSave cloud storage controller, the personal cloud concept manifested in the CloudRemix cockpit and the π-Box flagship demonstrator and a vastly extended service engineering and provisioning toolchain. Furthermore, FlexCloud brought the conceptual integration of clouds into cyber-physical systems through the ResUbic cluster.
DAAD (October 2009 - June 2010, July 2010, July 2012)

We would like to thank the DAAD for allowing two students to spend their internship with us. Furthermore, DAAD regularly supports practical summer courses which help disseminating and improving OSSPRI results.
THESEUS/TEXO (March 2007 - June 2011)

The project was funded by means of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology under the promotional reference "01MQ07012". Major results were the SPACE service platform, early SPACEflight flagship demonstrators, social service networks as marketplaces and the native Internet of Services desktop.
Technische Universität Dresden (since October 2006)

We would like to thank TU Dresden for providing the server hosting and initial development in the FutureSOA project as well as ongoing support for the initiative.
Much of the work on projects is either publicly funded work or comes from volunteer contributions. Please check out our credits and funding sections to learn more.
