Helix Nebula @ The European Cloud Computing Conference, 21 March 2012, Brussels

The European Cloud Computing Conference was attended by Jurry de la Mar, T-Systems last March. An event where representatives from EC, Data Protection Authorities, Regulatory Competent bodies and cloud services providers got together to discuss the future of Cloud Computing in Europe.
Focusing on the Commission’s plans for the development of a European Cloud Partnership between public authorities and industry to implement a European Cloud Computing Strategy, this conference focused the role that Cloud Computing can play in Europe’s future IT landscape, and what could be done in both the short-term and the long-term in order to maximise its benefits and potential economic impact.

Helix Nebula is a new, pioneering partnership between leading IT providers and four of Europe’s biggest research centres, CERN, EMBL, ESA and PIC, charting a course towards sustainable cloud services for the research communities - the Science Cloud.
