Scientific applications often require multiple computing resources deployed on a coordinated way. The deployment of multiple resources require installing and configuring special software applications which should be updated when changes in the virtual infrastructure take place. When working on hybrid and federated cloud environments, restrictions on the hypervisor or cloud management platform...

Virtual Research Environments (VREs) are innovative, web-based, community-oriented, comprehensive, flexible, and secure working environments conceived to serve the needs of science . They are expected to act like "facilitators" and "enablers" of research activities conducted according to cutting-edge science patterns. They play the role of "facilitators" by providing seamless access to the...

IaaS clouds are very popular since you can easily create simple services (Linux PC, web portal, etc.) in the cloud. However, the situation is much more difficult if you want to build dynamically, on demand a complex infrastructure tailored to your particular needs. A typical infrastructure contains database services, processing resources and presentation services. These services together...

R is a programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics that is widely used in different context like environmental research thanks to different geodata packages. Within the EGI-Lifewatch Competence Centre context, one of the tasks is to provide a final user oriented application based on R so different solutions to achieve this goal are being explored. One...
57. Atmosphere: A Platform for Development, Execution and Sharing of Applications in Federated Clouds
Dr Marian Bubak (ACC Cyfronet and Department of Computer Science, AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland)
The advent of cloud computing offers new opportunities for developers and users of scientific applications . This paper presents results of research on efficient development, federation, execution and sharing of cloud computational services. We have investigated methods for integration of heterogeneous public cloud infrastructures into a unified computational environment, cost...
88. The VESPA Virtual Research Environment: a final report about the project at the beginning of clinical operations
Marco Pappalardo (Software Engineering Italia srl)
The VESPA project aimed to provide a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) for qualitative and quantitative evaluation and rehabilitation of motor and cognitive diseases. It addressed more than thirty operational objectives to enable an extremely innovative platform for early evaluation and rehabilitation of cognitive diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Dementia, Mental Retardation and Linguistic...
