Launching the Helix Nebula Science Cloud Pilot Phase webcast, 6 February 2018, Bologna, Italy
In November 2016, 4 Consortia won the HNSciCloud Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) tender for the establishment of a European hybrid cloud platform to support the deployment of high-performance computing and big-data capabilities for scientific research.
After the submission of their designs, 3 out of the 4 consortia were selected to build the prototypes.
On the 6th of February 2018 the consortia that will move from the Prototype to the Pilot Phase of the HNSciCloud PCP will be announced.
If you are a potential user of the hybrid cloud platform or you are simply interested in understanding more about the pilots that will be deployed, mark the date in your agenda and follow the live webcast of the event directly from our website www.hnsicloud.eu.
