This is the organisation for the dynamic cloud orchestrator MiCADO.

This software was developed as part of the now completed COLA project. The University of Westminster (U.K.) and MTA SZTAKI (Hungary) will continue its open-source development as part of other research projects.

MiCADO is an auto-scaling framework for Docker applications. It supports autoscaling at two levels. At virtual machine (VM) level, a built-in Kubernetes cluster is dynamically extended or reduced by adding/removing Nodes hosted on cloud virtual machines. At container level, the number of replicas implementing a Docker Service is automatically increased/decreased. The application detailing the services, links and scaling rules must be specified by a TOSCA-based Application Description Template (ADT).

The MiCADO manual is hosted at .
