ERAC is a research project supported by the VERDIKT programme. Two Ph.D fellows linked to the CIPSI centre at the University of Stavanger are also associated with the ERAC project.
Through close collaboration with Oracle, Simula, the University of Oslo and the University of Stavanger, the consortium aims to be a leader in a core area such as cloud computing, which will form the backbone of services and applications in the Internet of the future. Other selected core areas for excellence are: (i) communications technology and infrastructure and ( ii ) security, privacy and vulnerability. The Consortium's main focus is on chosen problem areas such as rapid elasticity, scale, virtualization, simplicity and energy efficiency. Current cloud computing technology still experiences limitations in these areas.
