Unicorn is an EU project that aims to streamline the design, deployment and management of secure and elastic–by-design multi-cloud services.
Since 2016, project partners have been working on development and design libraries to provide security enforcement mechanisms, data privacy restrictions, monitoring metric collection and resource management.
The goal is to enable continuous orchestration and automatic optimisation of portable and dynamic cloud services running on virtual instances or micro-execution containers for increased security, data protection privacy and vast resource (de)-allocation.
To reduce software release time and provide a powerful tool for SMEs to improve software design and continuous productivity enhancement, Unicorn project solutions are based upon existing developments to the largest possible extent, and build on the results of other European projects including CELAR, PaaSport, PaaSword and ARCADIA.
Towards this end, the Unicorn vision can be considered two-fold: to enable software developers to design and develop secure and elastic applications and in particular to increase the awareness of SMEs and start-ups.
