The mOSAIC project kicked off

The mOSAIC project aims to develop an open-source platform that enables applications to negotiate Cloud services as requested by their users. Using the Cloud ontology, applications will be able to specify their service requirements and communicate them to the platform via the innovative API. The platform will implement a multi-agent brokering mechanism that will search for services matching the applications' request, and possibly compose the requested service if no direct hit is found. The platform will facilitate competition between Cloud providers, who, in return, will be able to reach customers they could not reach before.
