Dynamic Real-time Infrastructure Planner (DRIP)
The Dynamic Real-time infrastructure planner (DRIP) allows application developers to plan a customized virtual infrastructure based on application level deadline constraints and resource budgets, provisioning the virtual infrastructure using standardized interfaces (TOSCA and OCCI), deploy application components onto the virtual infrastructure, and start execution on demand.
Distributed application developers
Automated selection of optimal VMs and VM topology for an application workflow with deadline constraints; automatic provisioning of VMs according to the planned topology; automatic installation of application containers onto provisioned VMs from remote repositories.
Optimised infrastructure planning and provisioning for time-critical applications.
Partial critical path based VM infrastructure planning; Automated networked VM provisioning with support for multiple sites; Remote deployment of containerised application components onto provisioned VMs.
 Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) are a method of estimating technology maturity of components during the acquisition process. For non-technical components, you can specify “n/a”. For technical components, you can select them based on the following definition from the EC:
TRL 1 – basic principles observed
TRL 2 – technology concept formulated
TRL 3 – experimental proof of concept
TRL 4 – technology validated in lab
TRL 5 – technology validated in relevant environment (industrially relevant environment in the case of key enabling technologies)
TRL 6 – technology demonstrated in relevant environment (industrially relevant environment in the case of key enabling technologies)
TRL 7 – system prototype demonstration in operational environment
TRL 8 – system complete and qualified
TRL 9 – actual system proven in operational environment (competitive manufacturing in the case of key enabling technologies)
