Datacentre-less cloud for interoperability and no data sovereignty constraints: Cubbit in Science Mesh – An interview with Lorenzo Posani
Cloud computing has been revolutionizing the way small-medium enterprises (SMEs) and companies in general, use IT. SMEs are able to access high-end technology and information at an affordable cost. However, moving your data to the cloud has some associated risks, namely lack of control, privacy and legal risks.
The Science Mesh recently published a demonstration of a procedure to establish trust between users from various sites federated in the Science Mesh. It allows the users to share resources such as file and folder access or access to applications. While the demonstration is quite technical, a graphical user interface is not yet available for the functionality - the operations can be performed through a command line interface, as demonstrated in the demo video available below.
