Introduction

The Open Cloud for Research Environments (OCRE) consortium combines the expertise of four partners to enable access and drive the adoption and use of commercial digital services by the European research community. Essential for interdisciplinary research, these services include:

  • Commodity type commercial digital services, such as:

    • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS), providing compute, storage, network and related services, and a platform allowing customers to develop, run, and manage applications as a public cloud service.

    • Software as a Service (SaaS), an on-demand software licensing and delivery model in which software is used by the customer on a subscription basis and is hosted by the supplier as a public cloud service. File storage (sync and share), online collaboration, simulation and virtualisation tools are example services.

  • Secure Earth Observation commercial services, which make use of the Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS).

After gathering user requirements, the OCRE will manage the adoption funds and buy resources from the selected suppliers (OCRE will act as a customer) and make cloud resources available to institutions. Such a delivery vehicle is effective and efficient for the supply as well as the demand side.

Service adoption is the key focus of this work. A legal and technical mechanism (The OCRE Business Management Platform) will be created to integrate a range of these commercial services into the EOSC hub in order to make them more easily available to researchers.

Who is the project designed for?

OCRE project is designed for researchers and specifically, researchers working in the fields of environmental sciences and other fields benefiting from earth observation services.

How will your project benefit the end-user?

OCRE project allows researchers to benefit from innovative computing services from commercial providers.

Computers, Privacy & Data Protection (CPDP) offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, computer scientists and civil society from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss the latest trends and emerging issues. Each year, CPDP offers a compelling and diverse line-up of speakers and panels. This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world.
