PRESS RELEASE

Optimis toolkit

The latest version of the Optimis toolkit, which helps service and infrastructure providers, software developers, and end users build and run applications in the cloud, has been released.  

The toolkit, developed by Barcelona Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC) researchers in collaboration with 13 other European partners, can help users create their own digital IT infrastructures.

This toolkit is the final result of the Optimis European project, funded under the 7th Framework Program. BSC researchers have made a major contribution, providing many of the core components of the toolkit and leading one of the project use cases, where an application belonging to the BSC life sciences department has been used to show its capabilities.
