CTIC to promote webinar on cloud computing in partnership with ESR and MCTIC

- 17/08/2018

Project Specialists from the Research and Development Center on Digital Technologies for Information and Communication (CTIC/RNP) will be in a webinar on cloud computing promoted in partnership with ESR and MCTIC support, on September 4th, at 3pm. The theme chosen for the first CooperaTIC Webinar was 'International Cooperation Projects in Computer Cloud'.

In addition to aspects of intercontinental experimentation in global cloud infrastructures and services, during the webinar, some critical issues of this type of service that still need improvement, such as security and privacy, reliable clouds, resource pooling, data management and traceability, virtualization and hybrid systems will be addressed.

"Even though cloud computing is already a global paradigm in providing IT services across all sectors of the new digital economy, much still needs to be developed. The goal of this webinar is to put experts who are at the frontier of research on the subject to share results and promote the exchange of ideas", explains Marcelo A. Marotta, CTIC/RNP project coordinator.

The guests to help lead the webinar are representatives of three projects that address cloud computing from the 3rd and 4th Brazil-European Union Cooperation Program: EUBra-BIGSEA, ATMOSPHERE and EUBrasilCloudFORUM.

EUBRA-BIGSEA  (Europe-Brazil Collaboration of Big Data Scientific Research through Cloud-Centric Applications) develops a cloud computing infrastructure for the analysis of big data and applications for smart cities.

ATMOSPHERE (Adaptive, Trustworthy, Manageable, Orchestrated, Secure, Privacy-assuring Hybrid, Ecosystem for Resilient Cloud Computing) aims to create a platform for developing and deploying reliable and secure applications in cloud computing environments.

EUBrasilCloudForum is a knowledge dissemination and management initiative that has created a discussion forum for organizations in Brazil and Europe involved in research and development in the field.
