e-science center and CP3 joint seminar: Scientific Computing on Clouds

Who: Isabel Campos Plasencia (IFCA Santander and IFT Madrid)
When: Wednesday, August 30, 2017 at 14:00
Where: The CP³ meeting room

Distributed computing infrastructures are evolving from the Grid paradigm that has traditionally suported HEP experiments, towards a Cloud model, more flexible from the resource provision point of view, but more challenging when it comes to support scientific work. In this presentation the challenges and opportunities of an European Federated Cloud of computing and storage resources will be presented, focussing on the system software and technologies required to support scientific applications. The presentation will also briefly address the state of the art of federated storage resources and data managing in highly distributed computing environments.
