CometCloud is an autonomic framework for enabling real-world applications on dynamically federated, hybrid infrastructure integrating (public & private) clouds, data-centers and Grids.

The overreaching goal of CometCloud is to enable highly heterogeneous, dynamically federated computing and data platforms that can support end-to-end application workflows with diverse and dynamic changing application requirements. This is achieved through (a) autonomic on-demand federation of geographically distributed compute and data resources as needed by the application workflow, and (b) exposing the resulting software-defined federated cyberinfrastructure using elastic cloud abstractions and science-as-a-service platforms. As a result, CometCloud is able to create a nimble and dynamically programmable environment that autonomously evolves over time, adapting to changes in both the federated infrastructure and the application requirements.
