Linknovate Inc. was found 3 years ago in the US. Linknovate Science SL was recently funded in April 2104 to operate in the EU. Linknovate Science SL has been awarded a CSA H2020 EU project in September 2014, HOLA CLOUD (750,000 € total funding), to develop a cloud knowledge repository and search engine.
Linknovate’s role is to serve as pilot study of the different methods and models developed during this project. The distributed architecture of Linknovate’s product will allow the testing of different deployment configuration and strategies with real data of in production services.
Linknovate team has an extensive experience in the operation of distributed systems serving real world users. In particular, Linknovate has a broad knowledge of the FiWare stack for distributed computing. Linknovate engineers have addressed the issue of continuously adapting its infrastructure and deployment nodes for answering different loads of users requests. Linknovate experience and usage data will help to the testing and evaluation of the methods and models originated in this project in production scenarios.
Linknovate will contribute to this project in a dual role. First, they will act as an active source of data (user interaction, computational load, network traffic, etc.) in order to design and adjust the methods and models of the project. Second, it will help demoing and testing the developed models in the context of an actual running complex search engine with real clients and requirements.
