This session will present unpublished, novel research work related to the latest challenges, technologies, solutions and techniques related to networking within the cloud and to the efficient and effective cloud deployment and hosting of the various emerging applications and services. Effective solutions related to the placement, sizing, bursting, and migration of compute, storage, and data resources within the cloud network(s) become critical to the deployment of elastic and agile applications.

Session 1: EU-Brazil Cloud Research excellence today

Presentation session. Funded jointly by the European Commission (EC) and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation; Portuguese: Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia e Inovação (MCTI) of Brazil, the EUBrasilCloudFORUM project supports EU-BR collaborative projects in the collection and promotion of their results and activities. The results will be used to draft a research Roadmap on cloud computing, identifying collaboration needs and opportunities between Europe and Brazil for the European Commission and to MCTI, thus contributing to the definition of future cooperation priorities between the two regions.

This session will provide an overview of the priorities and outputs of each jointly funded project with a live demo from the FIBRE project and insight into issues such as cloud security personal data protection, trans-Atlantic flows of data, portability of data, and appropriate remedies to vendor lock-in.

Session 2: A common EU-BR technological & legal framework for managing security and privacy aspects on the cloud

Introductory pitch. Making an EU SME Life Easier with Accessible, Free Online Cloud Tools
Sara Pittonet Gaiarin, Trust-IT Services, Italy

Panel discussion. Europe and Brazil might have different perspectives on legal frameworks for privacy and data management, thus making solutions addressing security and privacy not always aligned. Current needs to process large amounts of data, potentially containing sensitive information, may require rethinking big data programming models for building scalable and secure applications. Application developers should carefully consider these issues while implementing services that handle personal data; policies should be defined and enforced at all stages during service provision. The ultimate goal is to address the concerns of the end-users and make them aware of the risks when data is not handled in a secure and privacy-friendly way.

This session will address the challenges in privacy and data protection, providing a close look at legal implication for cloud services mainly in Brazil, and will contribute to identify areas for collaboration and alignment between the two regions, supported by relevant stakeholders including research, industry and policy makers.

Session 3: Cloud Federation & Open Science Cloud at cross-regional level

Panel discussion.

Free flow of data and portability of both data and applications are among the main challenges to address for cloud computing; This is in order to help drive innovation by enabling the free movement of data for reasons other than the protection of personal data and by avoiding vendor lock-in. Federation of cloud resources is the way forward to address these data flows and portability issues. The actual need is to have computing resources aside data stores to reduce the latency and optimise the usage of the network infrastructure, and to replicate and synchronize data to make services and applications more resilient. Cloud marketplaces are the business equivalent of a cloud federation by offering customers the access to a wide variety of commercial services within the same platform. Capitalizing and leveraging upon the Open Science Cloud within the EU’s DSM strategy is a priority policy action to define a public, open cloud infrastructure that all scientific researchers can use in an integrated way, removing silos.

This session will shed light on the federation of cloud resources across the two regions and give a better understanding of how the European Open Science model could be adopted in Brazil, in order to establish a public cloud infrastructure for the Brazilian science community.

Session 4: Cutting edge cloud technologies: 5G, Cloud and IoT, Fog computing

Panel discussion.

The European Commission, in a recent communication (April 19th), has identified 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) amongst the ICT standardisation priorities for the Digital Single Market (DSM). This session will discuss the emergence of the mobile edge computing paradigm to reduce the latency for processing near the source large quantities of data and the need of the emerging 5G technology to satisfy the requirements of different verticals. Mobile Edge Clouds have the potential to provide an enormous amount of resources, but it raises several research challenges related to the resilience, security, data portability and usage due to the presence of multiple trusted domains, as well as energy consumption of battery powered devices. Large and centralized clouds have been deployed and have shown how this paradigm can greatly improve performance and flexibility while reducing costs. However, there are many issues requiring solutions that are user and context aware, dynamic, and with the capability to handle heterogeneous demands and systems. This is a challenge triggered by the Internet of Things (IoT) scenario, which strongly requires cloud-based solutions that can be dynamically located and managed, on demand and with self-organization capabilities to serve the purposes of different verticals.
