Unicorn: less costs and more security for entrepreneurs on the cloud

UNICORN cloud-computing software will ameliorate developers’ and entrepreneurs’ daily work.

How?

Here are some ideas shared by the project partners:

Software providers can focus on their core offerings and let Unicorn smartly handle elasticity, security and performance of their cloud services’, explains Sotiris Koussouris, from Suite5, one of the partners taking part in this project financed by the European Commission.

Besides, he states that this innovation will minimise operating expenses and maximise quality of service for their customers.

In addition to this, there are more good news for developers. Unicorn is empowering them to use high-level model-driven design tools to specify context-aware security and privacy solutions. This will enforce security and privacy policies in real time, according to Manos Papoutsakis, of FORTH, other partner from the UNICORN consortia.

In consequence, Papoutsakis underlines that ‘these tools will drastically reduce time-to-market for SMEs developing services for the global IT market, enabling them to rapidly design and build robust solutions that can be automatically deployed in multi-cloud infrastructures‘.

In line with these features, UNICORN allows developers to choose which parts of the application are deployed to which providers, and how all services are going to be orchestrated, as Diego Alonso – representative a from Cloud Incubator HUB– stresses.

What about security and data confidentiality? These are two of the biggest problems in software development. Alonso considers that compatibility with mainstream cloud providers and containerisation technologies will ease application deployment and scalability and will keep data secure.

To sum up, UNICORN will reduce costs of money and time for SMEs and startups when it comes to their cybersecurity and cloud computing management.

Unicorn Framework: The rise of DevOps as a Service (DaaS)

Cloud Computing has reached virtually all areas of society and its impact on service development, production, provision and consumption is manifold and far-reaching. Inevitably, as recent studies and our Stakeholder and Requirement Analysis study of 20 personalized interviews with potential stakeholders suggest, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Startups tend to embrace cloud computing to run parts of their application
