BIG SCIENCE TEAMS UP WITH BIG BUSINESS

Helix Nebula is a new, pioneering partnership between big science and big business in Europe that is charting the course towards the sustainable provision of cloud computing - the Science Cloud.

The scale and complexity of the Helix Nebula platform reaches far beyond what a single company can provide on its own. The Helix Nebula public/private partnership therefore brings together a range of different partners to drive its vision.
The partnership brings together leading IT providers and four of Europe’s leading research centres, CERN, EMBL, ESA and PIC in order to provide computing capacity and services that elastically meet big science’s growing demand for computing power.
Initially based on the needs of European big science, Helix Nebula ultimately paves the way for a Cloud Computing platform that offers a unique resource to governments, businesses and citizens.
