Ignacio Blanquer, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia - Spain
" My role in EUBra-BIGSEA is both at the level of the coordination and at the level of the cloud services. Our research group has developed in the past years an ecosystem of tools to ease and optimize the deployment and execution of scientific workloads on the cloud. This experience has been enriched with the participation in key European initiatives, such as EGI-ENGAGE and INDIGO, and of course through the cooperation with Brazilian institutions from EUBrazilCloudConnect and EUBra-BIGSEA.
We would like to share our views on modern cloud based infrastructures that share components adopted in production for the industry with additional requirements coming from the scenarios identified. As all the developments in EUBra-BIGSEA are on the OpenSource, we will be able to share them and let other organization to exploit them easily."
