European Union FP7 funded project RESERVOIR (Resources and Services Virtualization without Barriers) is launched in February 2008. It aims to develop breakthrough system and service technologies that will serve as the infrastructure for Cloud Computing. This goal will be achieved by creative coupling of virtualization, grid computing, and business service management techniques. RESERVOIR infrastructure will enable massive scale deployment and management of complex IT services across different administrative domains, IT platforms and geographies. The project will provide a foundation for a service-based online economy, where - using virtualization technologies - resources and services are transparently provisioned and managed on an on-demand basis at competitive costs with high quality of service. Key technologies being developed in RESERVOIR include:

* Technologies to enable the migration of both virtual machines and Virtual Java Service Containers across network and storage boundaries.
* Algorithms for the allocation of resources to conform to SLA (Service Level Agreement) requirements.
* The creation of a formal Service Definition Language to support service deployment and life cycle management across RESERVOIR sites.
* Security mechanisms for the safe deployment and relocation of virtual machines across physical machines, and RESERVOIR sites.
* The development of a business information model as well as business oriented payment and billing mechanisms to charge for resources used across one or more RESERVOIR sites.
* Testbed development to benchmark performance of actual industrial use cases in a RESERVOIR environment.

RESERVOIR results will serve the European community, project partners and their customers, in the development of next generation data centres demonstrating quantified and significant improvements in service delivery productivity, quality, availability and cost.
