D2.1 Report on the Open Market Consultation and the results

The goal of the HNSciCloud project is to create a hybrid cloud platform that can be used to deploy a massive amount of applications to perform high performance computing on large datasets.

Prior to the open market consultation, a workshop was organized on March 16th from 13h till 16h30 at the CERN headquarters in Geneva. During this moderated workshop, procurers analyzed and discussed the different requirements of the project. From these requirements, different use cases were identified and prioritized based on their value for the end-user. These use cases are discussed in more detail in section 2. An overview of the procurers that attended the workshop can be found in Appendix 1.

The open market consultation itself took place on March 17th 2016 from 13h30 till 17h, also at the CERN headquarters in Geneva. During this day a moderated workshop was organized to identify and estimate the risks for each of the previously identified use cases. These risks are discussed in more detail in section 3. An overview of the suppliers that attended the workshop can be found in Appendix 2.

The deliverable is also available on Zenodo.
