EOSC-hub: overview and cloud federation activities

Enol Fernández, EGI

The presentation will provide an overview of the H2020 project EOSC-hub and of how it will contribute to the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud initiative with a focus on the cloud federation activities in the project.

The EOSC-hub project creates the integration and management system (the Hub) of the future European Open Science Cloud that acts as a single contact point for researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research.

EOSC-hub builds on existing technology already at TRL 8 and addresses the need for interoperability by promoting the adoption of open standards and protocols. IaaS clouds will be incorporated into the EOSC-hub baseline services to provide the computing infrastructure that supports both generic advanced-services and community specific thematic-services.

This talk will also provide an overview on how the EGI Cloud Federation can be used as a blueprint for the federation of IaaS and the plans for extending this blueprint to support the federation of PaaS and SaaS services.
