The third project review meeting was held last July 8-9 in Rennes, France.
A delegation of XtremOS members gave presentations to allow the EC project officer and a reviewers' panel assessing the progress made by the consortium over the past year (June 2008- May 2009). The main technical and scientific achievements are the soon-to-be-publicly released second release of the XtreemOS system -including a graphical tool that makes the system easier to configure and install- and advanced features (integrated in XtreemOS v2.0).
The first demos of XtreemOS 2.0 were also run: a core scenario of the whole XtreemOS system and individual demos of stand-alone components (XtreemOS mobile device flavour, grid checkpointing/fault tolerance, virtual nodes...).
This project review meeting was followed by a meeting of the Scientific Advisory Committee on July 9-10, 2009.
The XtremOS SAC is composed of experts from academic and industrial entities, both internal and external to the consortium, is a scientific evaluation consultative body.
It aims at maintaining the consortium at the forefront of knowledge worldwide and tackling specific technical difficulties.
