Managing the Complexity of the Open Source Infrastructure

The main objective of the Mancoosi project is to develop the scientific knowledge and build the tools necessary to manage the complexity of the open source infrastructure. This infrastructure is one of the essential building blocks of tomorrow's software architectures: the success of LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Php) inside as well as outside the data centers is clear evidence of this. Yet, this infrastructure undergoes a fast-paced and distributed evolution that is too often maintained in ad-hoc ways using tools and processes that have clearly attained their limits today. There is a need for new and innovative technology, and this is what Mancoosi will provide.

Mancoosi is a European research project in the Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission. The project is situated in the FP7 theme Information & Communication Technologies (ICT), Challenge 1: Pervasive and Trusted Network and Service Infrastructures, Objective 2007.1.2 Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering. The project has started February 1st, 2008, and will have a duration of 3 years.
