D3.3 Finalised User and Service Requirements Report

This report will focus on the activities and outcomes of work package 3 with regard to the gathering of infrastructure and service requirements. We aim to document the learning process and summarise our findings and improvements to the process. The objective was to use the knowledge and experience of both the participating research organisations and commercial cloud service providers to develop a requirements framework that would address the technical and non-technical expectations of the demand-side and the capabilities of the supply-side.


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.
