Energy efficiency is at the heart of EU's Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and of the transition to a resource efficient economy. Due to lack of Energy, efficiency is a very cost effective way to enhance security of energy supply, and to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.
The ASCETiC project aims to provide novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying and running software at the different layers of a Cloud stack, while maintaining other quality aspects of software to adequate and agreed levels.
As a result, ASCETiC delivers a framework consisting of tools and methods, so named ASCETiC Toolbox, covering each phase of development lifecycle for implementing energy efficient cloud services at the different layers of a cloud stack.
ASCETiC Toolbox functionalities are shown in a set of webinars that can be accessed following the provided links.
