UberCloud Partners with EGI to Bridge Research and Innovation

Today the UberCloud announced a collaboration with EGI based on a shared vision to embrace distributed computing, storage and data related technologies. As a federation of more than 350 resource centers across 50 countries, EGI has a mission to enable innovation and new solutions for many scientific domains to conduct world-class research and achieve faster results.

Using a Widely Distributed Federated Cloud System to Support Multiple Disparate User Communities

“The EGI federated cloud, which has been in development for the past 3 years has now entered production. Building on the tried and trusted EGI core services we have added federated IaS compute and storage services, utilising open standards to support more than 10 pilot communities. We will discuss the model of federation, and the different application design models that the users use and why cloud will be a success when compared with grid due to this inherent flexibility.”
