Sixth Open Research Cloud Alliance Workshop

Wednesday, 22 May, 2019 - 08:00
Wednesday, 22 May, 2019 - 17:30

This first of three workshops will provide an orientation on the NIST Cloud Federation Reference Architecture (CFRA), an overview of research, industrial, and governmental use-cases, presentations of alternative approaches to the deployment of federation platforms, and the ORCA Testbed initiative. The second workshop will focus on technical delivery of a testbed for the deployment of a federation management platform supporting research use cases (with participating research cloud providers). The final workshop will review outcomes, develop a comprehensive report providing feedback on the CFRA and the ORCA federation management platform, and identify next steps.

This comes from work undertaken in OGC Testbeds 14 and 15.
