Demonstrations provide researchers and practitioners with an exciting and interactive opportunity to present their systems, artifacts and/or research prototypes, either at a regular session or at the technical exhibition. In any case, it is required to avoid a commercial format, even if the demo consists of presenting a business product or service. Instead, the presentation should focus on technical aspects.
Any written support materials may be distributed locally but not published in the proceedings. Authors who already present a paper at the conference may apply for a demonstration, to complement but not to replace their paper presentation. Demonstrations can also be made by sponsor companies or as a mixed initiative involving researchers and industrial partners.
Demonstrations are based on an informal setting that encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. This is an opportunity for the participants to disseminate practical results of their research and to network with other applied researchers or business partners.

Concerning the format of the demo, we can accommodate it either as a demonstration in a booth (physical area of 4 sq. meter, with a table and 2 chairs) at the exhibition area, as a poster or as a 20 min oral presentation at a session especially set up for demonstrations. It is also possible to organize the presentation of the same demo in more than one format. Please contact the event secretariat.

DECIDE: DevOps for Trusted, Portable and Interoperable Multi-Cloud Applications towards the Digital Single Market


Juncal Alonso
ICT, Tecnalia Research & Innovation
Brief Bio
Juncal Alonso has a master on Telecommunications engineer from the University of the Basque Country (UPV) (Bilbao, Spain) - 2005 and a Master on “e-administration and local government management” from Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (Spain) in 2006. From 2007 until now he has been working as an R&D Engineer at Fundación TECNALIA Research & Innovation (Zamudio, Spain) in the ICT-European Software Institute division. She started her Ph.D. studies in 2015 in the area of multi-cloud applications and Cloud service intermediation.

This demo session aims at presenting a research prototype, coming out of the European Project DECIDE ( DECIDE aims at creating a new generation of multi-cloud services-based software framework, enabling techniques, tools and mechanisms to design, develop, operate, and dynamically (re-)deploy multi-cloud aware applications in an ecosystem of reliable, interoperable, and legal compliant cloud services. It extends the DevOps concept in what the project has named as ‘Extended DevOps’ focused on both its axes: namely Dev and Ops. In the case of the Dev axis, it proposes to start with the continuous approach promoted by the DevOps philosophy, right from the architecture, then to proceed with a continuous deployment simulation followed by the optimization of the application with respect to predefined and prioritized non-functional requirements (NFR) and then, the definition of a multi-cloud SLA for the application taking into consideration the underlying resources selected. In the Ops axis, it proposes a continuous monitoring task, targeting both the underlying cloud resources and the application itself, followed by a self-adaptation or automatic redeployment based on the violation of the thresholds established in the MCSLA for the application or in the Cloud SLAs of the contracted resources.

The demo aims at introducing the following assets:

  • DECIDE DevOps Framework, that guides the DevOps teams in the architecting, pre-deployment, deployment and operation of multi-cloud applications.
  • DECIDE ARCHITECT: which recommends a set of architectural patterns (based on determined non-functional requirements), namely fundamental, design, optimization and deployment, to developers of multi-cloud applications that follow a microservices approach.
  • DECIDE OPTIMUS: which with the classification of the microservice-based application and the determination of the infrastructure needs, calculates the most appropriate combination of cloud resources where each microservice should be deployed. The optimization algorithm used is an adaptation of NGSA II.
  • DECIDE ACSmI, which allows to discover, benchmark, automatically contract and monitor trusted and legal cloud service offerings. ACSmI monitors the compliance of the SLOs of the contracted services SLAs and whenever a violation occurs, an alert is raised, which may trigger a new (automatic) redeployment.
  • DECIDE ADAPT, which deploys the application microservices on the selected combination of cloud resources in an automatic way. ADAPT also monitors the microservices and their adherence to the SLOs defined by the developer. Shall an SLO not be fulfilled, an (automatic) redeployment may be triggered.
