Launching the Helix Nebula Science Cloud Prototype Phase webcast event 3 April 2017, 14:30 CEST

On  the  3  April  2017  14:30  CEST,  the awards  ceremony  for  the  successful  contractors  moving  to the  Prototype  Phase  of  the  Helix  Nebula  Science  Cloud  Pre-Commercial  Procurement is  taking place at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland. 
 
In   November   2016, 4   Consortia won   the € 5.3   million   joint  HNSciCloud Pre-Commercial Procurement  (PCP) tender  and  started  to  develop  the designs  for  the  European  hybrid  cloud 
platform   that   will   support   high-performance,   data-intensive,   scientific   use-cases. 
At   the beginning  of  February  2017,  the  four  consortia  met  at  CERN  to  present  their  proposals  to  the buyers.  After  the  submission  of  their  designs,  the  consortia  were  asked  to  prepare  their  bids  for the prototyping phase. 
In early April, the winners of the bids  to build  prototypes will be announced at CERN during the Launching  the  Helix  Nebula  Science  Cloud  Prototype  Phase webcast  event.  The  focus  of  the webcast will  be the  award  ceremony  and  the  presentations  of  the solutions  moving into  the prototyping phase.   
 
If  you  are  interested  in  understanding  more  about  the  prototypes,  or  simply  want  more  insight into the Pre-Commercial Procurement  process, mark the date  in your agenda and follow  the  live webcast of the event directly from our website www.hnscicloud.eu.
