OPTIMIS Toolkit works

OPTIMIS Demo Videos take a look at how the Toolkit works

We have uploaded some videos that will provide a detailed overview of how OPTIMIS Toolkit works.

If you want to learn about OPTIMIS Toolkit, start by watching the next videos that show its main capabilities from a general perspective and cover details of some of the major aspects of the Toolkit.

Overall Scenario

The Overall Scenario puts together OPTIMIS Toolkit Programming Model, Cloud Brokerage and Bursting capabilities in a integrated scenario that provides an overall view of the capabilities offered by the OPTIMIS Toolkit.


OPTIMIS Toolkit provides tools for the full cloud life-cycle


The Toolkit provides powerful tools for developers to create Cloud applications that helps the building a system that takes into account the definition of requirements, including the support of economic effective and ecological efficient management of the full life cycle of services.

IDE Eclipse Marketplace

This is a 'how to' tutorial intended to guide future OPTIMIS developers through the Eclipse Marketplace and teach them how to install and use OPTIMIS Eclipse IDE Plugin that enhances Eclipse IDE (Integrated Development Environment) with OPTIMIS Toolkit.

Data Analytics as a Service

This demo shows focuses on the use of Service Construction tools, and demonstrates its use in a private Cloud scenario by means of the Data Analytics as a Service application and in a multi-Cloud Scenario using the Genomic Computation Service.



Interoperability with OPTIMIS


Interoperability of OPTIMIS Toolkit with existing Cloud solutions is considered a critical aspect of our Toolkit and we have made OPTIMIS interoperable between different Virtual Machine Managers. Our Team conducted an impact and feasibility analysis of different interoperability options linked to the different adoption models defined by the original scope of the software, analyzing alternatives for the following adoption models:

  • Full OPTIMIS Infrastructure providers: IPs which have the complete OPTIMIS toolkit.
  • OPTIMIS Enhanced Infrastructure providers: In which parts of the OPTIMIS toolkit interact or are substituted by other existing tools. Basically it consists on the replacement of Cloud Fabric controller (originally Emotive Cloud) and TREC Enabled Cloud Automation & Monitoring.
  • Non-OPTIMIS Infrastructure Providers: Public cloud providers that do not adopt any of the OPTIMIS components, and for which OPTIMIS provides a series of plug-ins developed for specific provider APIs.

Based on the results of the analysis, OPTIMIS Team selected the following enhancements to improve the original OPTIMIS Toolkit framework and are now available out-of-the-box. These enhancements include support for:

  • OPTIMIS Enhanced Infrastructure providers (Open Nebula, Open Stack)
  • Non-OPTIMIS (Amazon WS)

Interoperability with


OPTIMIS Interoperability with OpenNebula

This video shows OpenNebula Manager as an example of the Toolkit interoperability capabilities. It illustrates the use of OPTIMIS tools on top of Open Nebula private Cloud installation. It demonstrates the coordinated usage of OPTIMIS toolkit and Open Nebula for VM Management, TREC assessment and integrated GUIs.
