Mantychore OpenNaaS Environmental Test Case

Mantychore is a FP7 project that provides an open source framework (OpenNaaS) to offer NaaS services (i.e. IPNaaS). GreenStar Network is a consortium based in Canada of environmental researchers from academia, data centre and renewable energy providers who using the CANARIE network for connectivity. The goal is to optimise the distribution of VM applications at data centres, according to the availability of renewable energy using a” Follow the sun- Follow the Wind model”. The talk explores how the networks were integrated and discusses how OpenNaaS is being considered to allow GSN to request BoD services with Green IT considerations when building IPNaaS. The collaboration aims at allowing GSN to setup dynamic connectivity services across European GSN nodes, and optimise the VM deployment to create carbon-neutral infrastructures to reduce GHG emissions.
