Helix Nebula Sharpens up Europe’s Cloud Market
On 27 September the European Commission outlined its new cloud strategy. The thrust of the strategy is boosting cloud uptake among the 27 member states and across the economy. The strategy includes a package of measures to build trust in cloud computing and boost a competitive digital single market. A European approach is crucial to achieving economies of scale and unleashing benefits for both providers and users.
One of the key actions in a European Cloud Partnership with industry and member states is to harness the public sector’s buying power, shape the European cloud market and increase the chances for European cloud providers to grow.
Helix Nebula is a shining example of how European commercial providers and leading research institutions have embraced the cloud to create an ecosystem for scientists and SMEs, and ultimately create a cloud market for the public sector in Europe. Helix Nebula has also established a European Cloud Partnership with clear commitment from industry and commercial providers.
HELIX NEBULA PARTNERSHIP
Helix Nebula is a new, pioneering partnership between leading IT providers and four of Europe’s biggest research centres, CERN, EMBL, ESA and PIC, charting a course towards sustainable cloud services for the research communities - the Science Cloud.
