SUCRE

Supporting Cloud Research Exploitation

SUCRE aims at investigating and suggesting ways to reinforce the adoption of Open Cloud solutions by key stakeholders. In doing so, SUCRE has engaged two user communities whose future computing requirements could be very well accommodated by Open Clouds, namely, the public sector and the healthcare service provisioning industry. Through the formation and operation of a EU-Japan experts group, SUCRE is also providing support to Cloud interoperability and collaboration between the two regions. In order to fulfil its impact in this context, SUCRE has already contributed a number of significant results. Three issues of the project’s official CloudSource magazine have been released, while two videos have been prepared illustrating the benefits of Open Clouds for the two aforementioned domains. Moreover, a set of public reports effectively captures the current status of Open Cloud adoption by the two areas of interest. Enriched with insights given by pertinent stakeholders through qualitative interviews, these documents pinpoint the tangible benefits as well as the technical, economic and political challenges that still have to be met in order to facilitate the wide adoption of Open Cloud technologies. SUCRE has also released a public document that details the outcomes of the activities of the EU-Japan experts group in the form of a set of recommendations for strengthening Cloud interoperability and collaboration between the two regions.
