On 14-16 November the EaPConnect partners took part in an advanced Cloud Workshop in Rome, organised by GARR, the Italian Research and Education Network.
The hybrid event offered the opportunity for knowledge sharing on the various uses of cloud platforms in the research and education environment, and included a brief introduction of the activities of GARR’s cloud department, its developments and use cases.
Day one featured a recap and generic updates on areas such as federation, security, monitoring, under-cloud infrastructure and geographical availability. The remainder of the three day event had a roundtable format where participants evaluated a variety of techniques and were encouraged to discuss and share their different needs, requirements and challenges.
