Abstract:

Cloud federations enable effective collaboration as they provide a highly customisable and scalable computing platform for any kind of research. The EGI Federated Cloud is a multi-national open cloud system that integrates institutional IaaS clouds into a computing platform for data and/or compute-driven applications and services that is evolving to accommodate new kind of providers, including commercial ones, and new kind of services.

The session will also include a review of the status of the ongoing technical developments with update talks from the developers and discussion on how they can contribute to the evolution of the federation.
