The HARNESS Project (2012-2015) developed a new generation of cloud computing platform that incorporates non-traditional and heterogeneous computational, networking and storage resources into the data centre stack to provide vastly increased performance at lower cost. The project demonstrated its results via extensions to OpenStack.

Take a look at what HARNESS will mean for a cloud user in the Mike’s Story video below. Find out more about these featured technologies.
