Abstract:
This position paper discusses the concept of a European Federated Cloud This expands from the initial service offering from the EGIís Federation IaaS Cloud Infrastructure Platform. This builds on the foundations offered by the properties and services of EGIís Core Infrastructure Platform supporting a set of infrastructure independent services to facilitate federation of resources. A rich portfolio of Cloud services is expected to emerge over time, which will be further facilitated through directed actions coming from within EGI, local, national and European funding streams.
The document concludes with a brief overview of the value proposition for the two principal target audiences of this document; Cloud service providers on one hand, and Cloud service consumers on the other.
