OCEAN is a two-year project kicking off in October 2012, which will contribute to the emergence of a sustainable open cloud business ecosystem in Europe. OCEAN will focus on three types of open cloud projects:
European FP7 research projects,
European national open cloud projects,
Japanese open cloud projects.
To generate synergies among open cloud projects and reduce overlaps between them, OCEAN has developed a four-pronged approach that will: create trust, develop synergies, ensure compliance and maintain active interest in the program.
The Ocean consortium consists of four partners from Germany, France, Italy and Japan, which together will contribute their expertise to the project. They are:
Fraunhofer (Project Coordinator)
Engineering Ingegneria Informatica SpA, (ENG)
Information-Technology Promotion Agency (IPA)
Currently, the OCEAN website is under construction. Stay tuned ...
