We are very proud to announce that we have been shortlisted in the UK IT Industry Awards 2020 under the category of Emerging Technology Project of the Year for our work in live-migration of virtual machines among data-centres of different administrative domains within the H2020 CATALYST project! It is a great honor and greatly motivates us to be finalists in the UK IT Industry Awards for a second year in a row.
Our innovation, IGNITER, enables trustworthy, privacy-preserving live migration of virtual machines among data centres of different administrative domains, an advent that, on one hand, has never been achieved before and, on the other, further strengthens the democratization of the hybrid cloud computing, eventually breaking vendor-lock ins with respect to cloud computing service provisioning. You can also check out our open source code here. In YouTube, you may also find a totally technical primer on how IGNITER works!
The final results of the awards will be announced on November 11, 2020, so, stay tuned for updates!
