D6.1 Interoperability Requirements Report

This document reports on the activities carried out in Helix Nebula, during the first year of the project, to investigate, identify and analyse interoperability and integration concerns between publicly funded e-Infrastructures and commercial cloud providers. The report has been structured around interoperability levels as described in the European Interoperability Framework and it also includes a specific analysis concerning different business cases and operational scenarios of interoperating service architectures.


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.
