Helix Nebula - The Science Cloud D7.3 Costing exercise comparing in-house vs. cloud based operation for the CERN flagship use-case and incorporation of qualitative cloud adoption criteria targeting prospect members
This deliverable specifically aims to compare the TCO of current on premise deployments at CERN with potentially outsourced on demand instances offered by the participating suppliers. Originally, the use cases of the flagships were supposed to be taken as reference to perform this exercise. Because of divergent specifications compared to the HN Market Place, which was set up in January 2014, it would not have been very beneficial. Therefore, we reached out for alternatives and identified CERN, an initial member of HN, as reference case.
