Mick Symonds of Atos attended and presented Helix Nebula at the Target conference, “Probing Big Data for answers”, in Groningen, The Netherlands, on Thursday 4 April 2013. The presentation was entitled “Helix Nebula – hosting Big Data for European Science”, and addressed the three following subjects:
- the background of Helix Nebula,
- a case study; the forthcoming Euclid space mission, for which Atos is proposing data management approaches,
- what does Helix Nebula aim to offer by the use of Big Data and Information management services.
Mick Symonds of Atos presented Helix Nebula at the Workshop on “Cloud Computing SLAs in FP7 - Exploitation of Research Results”, organised by the unit CONNECT E2 "Software & Services, Cloud" of the European Commission in Brussels on 27 May 2013.
This was an expert workshop focusing on exploiting the research results of projects in the domain of Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and was attended by representatives of many of the projects funded by FP7.
CERN, EMBL, ESA, Atos, T-Systems & Cloudsigma at DG-CONNECT, Excellence in Science, 08 March 2013
CERN, EMBL, ESA the flagship use cases and Atos, T-Systems and Cloudsigma, the suppliers working group presented Helix Nebula aspects to DG-CONNECT, Excellence in Science workshop.
CERN represented Helix Nebula at the 10th e-Infrastrusture Concentration Meeting in Brussels on the 6th and 7th of March.
The 10th e-Infrastructure Concertation Meeting was organised by the Commission Services with the support of the e-ScienceTalk project.
The main aim of the meeting was to bring projects together in order to discuss issues related to the completion of the 7th Framework Programme and the start of an e-infrastructures activity during Horizon 2020 (2014-2020).
T-Systems attended the TF Storage meeting of TERENA network in Berlin on the 5th-6th of March.
TERENA has EMBL, CERN and ESA as associate members therefore TERENA watches closely their projects, especially the Helix Nebula. The approach to team up with commercial providers delivering custom-made cloud services to the scientific community is actually in favour of TERENA.
T- Systems (Jurry dela Mar) presented to TERENA the Helix Nebula and all about the potential partnership with the R&E sector of TERENA.
CloudSigma, Open Nebula, ESA and T-Systems representatives will be present at Cloudscape V "Cloud for savings, Cloud for quality" in Brussels, Belgium, 27 - 28 February 2013, on behalf of HelixNebula. ESA and Cloudsigma will make a joint presentation of HN.
