  1. 1. The European Cloud Computing Strategy Francisco García Morán DG for Informatics, European CommissionCloud: an elastic executionenvironment of resourcesinvolving multiple stakeholdersand providing a metered serviceat multiple granularities for aspecified level of quality (ofservice).Source: Expert group on Cloud Computing, 2009http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/ssai/docs/cloud-report-final.pdf 1
  2. 2. Definition Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction NIST definition of Cloud Computing http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/SNS/cloud-computing/cloud-def-v15.doc“The Cloud” for the uninitiated … + = - = + = 2

  5. 5. Cloud standardisation:the issues standardisation is highly complex the supply side is not interested too early: players prefer to gain market share the demand side is hesitant current solutions could result in lock in situations large number of involved parties technology providers, solution integrators, governments, user groups, etc. regulatory requirements to comply with several standardisation bodies and fora with heavy non-European participation there is a real need to develop ••• 9 Data protectionKey issue for EuropeData may be hosted anywhereData is subject to location specificlegislative issues 5

  8. 8. Ongoing activities Policy initiativesThe Digital Agenda for Europe forsees: review of data protection framework; reform of EU standardisation system; better use of standards in public procurement; network security; etc. Research Projects EGI-InSPIRE: Create persistent eInfrastructure with clouds for science (EUR 25m) Eurocloud: Develop "servers on a chip" based on ARM processors (EUR 3.3m) StratusLab: Develop an open source cloud distribution (EUR 2.3m) SIENA: Co-ordinate adoption and evolution of interoperable distributed computing infrastructures with open standards for clouds and grids (EUR 0.41m) etc. Future Research and Pilots in Cloud Computing FP7 ICT Work programme 2011-12 For example, on: Intelligent, automatic management of cloud resources to ensure scalability Interoperability among different clouds, portability, protection of data in cloud environments, control of data distribution and latency. Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) (Orientations for Work programme 2011 under discussion) “Support several pilots to prepare move towards clouds of/for public services. Pilots to demonstrate potential benefits of adopting new service delivery architectures to reduce cost and enable private actors to build new services.” 8
