CloudWATCH2: Technology Round-up and Market Readiness Report

This document gives an overview of the results emerging from the first CloudWATCH2 Concertation meeting held 20 April 2016 within Net Futures 2016 on “Clusters, collaboration and creating impact in the market”.

The document highlights the main outcomes of the event including topics recommended by the four EC thematic clusters for the Horizon 2020 ICT Work Programme 2018 – 2020. The event also examined how projects can better prepare and plan exploitation activities and the importance of dissemination and outreach to target stakeholders. 

 

 


CloudWATCH2: Risk-Based Decision Making Mechanisms For Cloud Service In The Public Sector

This is the initial version of an incremental deliverable documenting the overall process adopted by CloudWatch2 to develop risk profiles for (prospective) cloud service customers from Public Administrations. Besides the actual process, this deliverable also presents the results of desktop research, which will be used to develop specific risk profiles in the second and final iteration of this document (D3.5).

 


CloudWATCH2_Structure and aspired outcomes of Cloud Interoperability Plugfests

CloudWATCH2 will deliver three Cloud Interoperability Plugfests during its lifetime. These are events, where technology providers can mutually test their implementations of standardised specifications for conformance and interoperability, sometimes under closed conditions supported by NDAs on results.

 


CloudWATCH2: Preliminary Roadmap to a Cloud Market Structure Encouraging Pricing Transparency

A stable and transparent cloud market is essential if uptake of cloud services is to blossom. End consumers, potentially hundreds of millions of Europeans that access services over the Internet, indirectly benefit from a stable and resilient market.

 


CloudWATCH2: Communication Strategy & Plan

The purpose of this document is to define the focused actions that the project will undertake to ensure active engagement with CloudWATCH target audiences. The document outlines the objectives to achieve this and the stakeholder groups that the project will be targeting.

 


CloudWATCH: Assessment of Cloud Profile interoperability testing

This document reports on actions CloudWATCH has taken around cloud standards development and certification. It describes the six cloud standards profile workshops organised by CloudWATCH as well as details on the cloud standards profile developed by the project. These workshops relate to the CloudWATCH portfolio of European and international use cases to identify common requirements from a security and interoperability perspective. We have used these to develop and test a set of common standards profiles around federated cloud services.

 


CloudWATCH: Final report on Cloud standards profile development (Update 1)

CloudWATCH has created a portfolio of European and international use cases to identify common requirements from a security and interoperability perspective. We have used these to develop and test a set of common standards profiles around federated cloud services.

 

 


CloudWATCH: Identifying location within the cloud ecosystem using an automated service for determining standards relevance

This report provides a detailed description of the data and methodology used to perform the quantitative clustering that serves as a precursor to the standards profile development activities of the CloudWATCH project.
