ATMOSPHERE (Adaptive, Trustworthy, Manageable, Orchestrated, Secure Privacy-assuring Hybrid, Ecosystem for REsilient Cloud Computing) is a 24-month project aiming at the design and development of an ecosystem of a framework, platform and application of next generation trustworthy cloud services on top of an intercontinental hybrid and federated resource pool. The framework considers a broad spectrum of properties and their measures. The platform supports the building, deployment, measuring and evolution of trustworthy cloud resources, data network and data services. The platform is demonstrated on a sensitive scenario to build a cloud-enabled secure and trustworthy application related to distributed telemedicine.
Leveraging the experience gained in past international projects in cloud computing, ATMOSPHERE will furthermore focus on consolidating a sustainable international, European and Brazilian, ICT cooperation activity. By increasing trust in big data cloud computing applications, ATMOSPHERE will contribute to one of the forces influencing both the European and Brazilian economies.
The purpose of deliverable “D2.3: Preliminary Research Priorities Report” is to summarise the EU Brazil joint effort initiatives in cloud computing and report a preliminary analysis of the present challenges and joint EU-Brazil research & innovation opportunities. This analysis is initially supported by another project, the EUBrasilCloudForum Project (https://eubrasilcloudforum.eu/ January 2016-July 2018), which constructed a Final Research Roadmap between Brazil and Europe that was transferred to ATMOSPHERE. The information available in this report is a result of not only desktop research on relevant websites, but also a collectiongcollection of valuable info that was available in documents focused on EU-BR cooperation in ICT, such as CloudscapeBrazil 2018 event report, Cloudscape Brazil 2018 Position papers, Blueprint on sustainability of the EU-BR Coordinated Calls within H2020 and EUBrasilCloudFORUM Roadmap.
In this activity, the project will work with this document as a source, complemented by a set of different activities that includes the research community engagement as well as market and stakeholder inputs. Stakeholders, policy makers and researchers will benefit from this analysis based on joint EU-BR initiatives that also reflect the EU Brazil policy dialogue. This deliverable presents a first version, that summarizes an initial analysis of the major present opportunities and describe the future ones.
