ATMOSPHERE was invited by RNP to showcase the projects goals and work at Forum RNP 2018 and in the RNP webinar “ICT Cooperation on Cloud Computing” (Cooperação TIC sobre computação em nuvem).
The project joined other ICT experts that are working together to bring innovative technologies to the Brazilian economy. The Brazilian National Research and Educational Network (Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa - RNP) is a Brazilian public organization that provides global integration and collaboration supported by information and communication technologies (ICT), for the generation of knowledge and excellence of education and research.
Lack of reliability has been the main limiting factor in more widespread adoption of cloud computing as a platform for application deployment. Although reliability aspects such as fault tolerance may even be better resolved in a cloud computing environment, other aspects such as security and privacy still lack more effective solutions.
During the recent “Forum RNP 2018 – Digital Heritage, Open Data and Memory Technologies” (Patrimônio digital, dados abertos e tecnologias de memória), held in Brasilia last 28 to 29 of August 2018, ATMOSPHERE was invited to present its work and promote the importance of increasing trust in cloud computing.
In front of an audience of rectors, pro-rectors, directors of information and communication technology (ICT) universities, federal research institutes, as well as public managers, project coordinators and area suppliers, ATMOSPHERE was presented as a project that will provide a solution to assess trustworthiness of cloud applications dealing with data and support the development of more trustworthy cloud applications.
ATMOSPHERE Brazilian Coordinator of and Federal University of Campina Grande Professor Francisco Brasileiro, at, had the opportunity to present the project details such as its main object, highlight the market problem and the solution that they provided with its stakeholders: cloud service providers, start-ups and SMEs, and users of sensitive data (e.g. health)
Did you know that only 23% of organisations trust cloud computing to host their data? (Source: Intel Security). This was highlighted by Francisco Brasileiro during ATMOSPHERE presentation at RNP webinar on “ICT Cooperation on Cloud Computing”, on 4 September 2018. Lack of trust is the main barrier of cloud computing adoption, especially for organisations that are dealing with high amounts of data.
ATMOSPHERE will address these challenges thanks to its research work, which capitalizes on the legacy from previous EU-Brazil funded projects: Lemonade and IM (EUBra-BIGSEA), FogBow (EU Brazil Cloud Connect) and Scone (SecureCloud).
