EGI Conference: Procuring cloud services – where are we now?
- Bob Jones (CERN)
Commercial cloud services is gaining traction in the public research sector.
While many user communities are considering commercial cloud services as a means of supporting their needs they are often unsure about how they can be procured in today’s public sector environment.
This session will present a number of current initiatives that have hands-on experience of procuring commercial cloud services for research communities. It will highlight their best practices and outline a scheme by which these can be combined to create a procurement model for the European Open Science Cloud.
