A main objective of project COLA (Cloud Orchestration at the Level of Application) is to provide a reference implementation of a generic and pluggable framework that supports the optimal and secure deployment and run-time orchestration of cloud applications.

Our MiCADO (Microservices-based Cloud Application-level Dynamic Orchestrator) services can monitor an application at run-time and will automatically scale it up or down in order to optimise application execution based on the user-defined multidimensional set of QoS (Quality-of-Service) parameters.

During today’s webinar on creating scalable applications with MiCADO, project COLA members Péter Kacsuk (SZTAKI) and Botond Rákóczi (UoW) presented how MiCADO can be used to autoscale the cloud-based application Data Avenue using Occupus and Promotheus.
