Cloud computing and Grid computing e-Infrastructures link local cluster computer resources together. Federated Clouds are the most recent developments.

On a European scale organisations active include:

EGI: a general federated cloud (& Grid) open to every organisation (through national organisations)

Helix Nebula a special Cloud set up by a few big laboratories.

Federated Operations

The Federated Operations solution is primarily aimed at Research Infrastructures and Resource Centres already within the European Grid Infrastructure EGI community or wishing to become part of it. It can also help other IT service providers that are geographically and/or structurally dispersed, and wish to organise themselves for federated service provision.
