Impact

EGI stakeholders will learn about the current status of Helix Nebula and they contribute to finalise the business case for EGI to integrate and provide their view on the interoperability concerns.

Summary

Helix Nebula - the Science Cloud is working to establish a sustainable European cloud computing infrastructure, supported by industrial partners, which will provide stable computing capacities and services that elastically meet demand. The "Blue Box" is their Service Enabling Framework that will enable users to interact in a central and transparent manner with multiple commercial cloud providers. On the other side, EGI is working to evolve the current production infrastructure with a federated cloud IaaS layer available to the users. It is wished to create synergies between the two initiatives and enable them to integrate and interoperate for the benefit of the research communities.

EGI.eu is working on an interoperability and integration roadmap that will touch business, organisational and technical aspects. The workshop will be the occasion to present and discuss a mature document of with integration scenarios and interoperability requirements.
