Researchers from i2CAT and Vicomtech offer a session on the latest virtualization technologies to students of the Degree in Computer Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC)
On May 10, Wilson Ramírez, Program Manager at i2CAT and PhD in Computer Architecture, and Roberto Viola, associate researcher at Vicomtech and PhD in Telecommunications Engineering, offered the session “Virtualization: Concepts, Experimentation Infrastructures and Applications” to the students of the Degree in Computer Engineering of the Polytechnic School of Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), located on the Vilanova i la Geltrú Campus.
During the session, both researchers explained to the students some of the virtualization tools available today, such as Openstack, Kubernetes and Virtual Box, and their application in experimentation infrastructures such as those that are being developed withing the framework of the Open-VERSO and Fed4Fire projects. “Virtualization opens the way to new network and computing infrastructures for scientific experimentation”, they pointed out.
This educational activity is part of the Open-VERSO project, led by both research centres and Gradiant.
