The Prior Information Notice of the HNSciCloud tender is out!

HNSciCloud, a new pre-commercial procurement project co-funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Programme and ten public research organisations[1] has just launched its Prior Information Notice!

HNSciCloud builds on the results of the PICSE project and aims to create a competitive marketplace of innovative cloud services to serve scientific users from a wide range of domains. The cloud platform will combine services at the IaaS level integrated into an environment supporting the full life-cycle of science work-flows. Open source solutions will be used to build the hybrid platform on which European cloud players can develop their own services for a wide range of users beyond research and science. The services will be integrated with data centres operated by the buyers and European-scale publicly funded e-Infrastructures. To achieve these objectives HNSciCloud will issue a public tender in 2016.

Don't miss the Open Market Consultation event: 17 March 2016, at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland! The main objective will be to present the tender specifications and to collect feedback from stakeholders.
